Circa 1967 Minnesota Pipers Player Issued Shooting Shirt
On the inside back collar of this durene is the "Wilson" manufactures tagging. On the front of the jacket is the “Minnesota Pipers 1967-68 ABA Champions” logo in orange and blue tackle twill with orange, blue and white embroidery. Across the back of the jersey is the “Pipers” in blue and white tackle twill. The jacket is properly tagged, was presented to us as worn and in our opinion, shows wear
Notes: In the inaugural 1967-68 season of the ABA, the Pittsburgh Pipers, led by Hall of Famer Connie Hawkins won the Eastern Division title and faced off against the New Orleans Bucs in the Championship Finals. In a hard fought seven-game series, the Pipers emerged as the victor to win the very first ABA title. Prior to the 1968-69 season, the team relocated and played as the Minnesota Pipers. The following year, in a twisted turn of events, they once again did what everyone least expected and moved the organization back to Pittsburgh, all while keeping the same team name.
