    Circa 1957 Walter Dukes Game Worn Detroit Pistons Uniform - First Season in Detroit! Originally founded as the Fort Wayne Zollner Pistons of the National Basketball League, the team joined the newly formed NBA in 1949. Despite playing before a solid local fan base in Fort Wayne, the Pistons struggled to make profit due to the small market, and after the 1956-57 season it made the move to Motown.

    Presented here is an extremely scarce Detroit Pistons complete uniform that was worn during the team's first season in Detroit by two-time NBA All Star Walter Dukes. It is the first of its kind we have offered. One of the toughest of all NBA Durene jerseys, the top features sewn-on tackle twill identifiers on the front and back, while the proper "MacGregor size 44" and washing instructions are sewn in the tail. The shorts consist of beautiful blue satin, while a No. 23 swatch, "MacGregor size 36" tag and "Griswold" tag is in the waist. Heavy wear is exhibited throughout. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $6,000 - up.
