    Circa 1972 Byron Beck Home & Road Game Worn Uniforms. In the vast and varied history of American athletics, the "hippest" league of them all is unquestionably the ABA, which delivered circus dribbling, thunderous slam dunks and afros the size of beach balls to a joyous viewing public. Matching the flash and flair of the players themselves were the uniforms they wore, and here we present the rare opportunity to own matching home and road complete ensembles sported by forward/center Byron Beck, one of just six players to have participated in all nine seasons (1967-76) of the original American Basketball Association.

    Each jersey makes use of the groovy purple and yellow team colors in designs that assert "Denver 40" on the chest and "Beck 40" on verso. Both pairs of shorts feature the charming Rockets logo at left thigh. Full "Sand-Knit" tagging appears in all four pieces, each including a label that expresses "Designed and Tailored Exclusively for the Denver Rockets, American Basketball Association." Jerseys are size 46, shorts size 36. Staining is far more pronounced on the white jersey than on any of the other pieces, though the white trunks and purple jersey are lightly touched as well. All continue to display very well however, and will surely make the rest of the uniforms in your collection feel downright stodgy by comparison. Included is a signed 1973 "Byron Beck Day" program with a color photo of the man himself on the cover, proving that the colors haven't faded on these uniforms--that's what they always looked like! LOA from Lou Lampson. LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).
