With 1138 points in his 1967-68 sophomore season, the first year he spent on the varsity squad, Pete Maravich ushered in a new "Pistol" era of Louisiana State University basketball. As is usually the case with players who average 43.8 points per game, Maravich was embraced by the LSU faithful who could not get enough of his dazzling offensive displays. Maravich's 1138 points easily topped the nation and gave him the LSU single-season scoring record, which he would again break in each of his two subsequent seasons with the Tigers. This Spalding Official Top-Flite 100 basketball is a game-ball from Maravich's 1967-68 season and has "LSU" stamped into one of the panels. "Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame" is stamped into another panel. On that panel, Maravich has written in thin black marker "I present this ball to you Dad. Without your guidance and assistance this would have never been made possible. Pete" and on an adjacent panel "1138" and "'67 '68" have been written in thick black marker. This is the basketball used in the final game of Pete's rookie varsity season. It comes with a letter of authenticity from Pete's wife, Jackie Maravich. The autograph comes with a PSA/DNA letter.
