With the emergence of Walt Frazier as the starting point guard for the Knicks, Butch Komives was traded along with Walt Bellamy to the Pistons for Dave DeBusschere on December 19, 1968. This was what Komives is most remembered for, but only because DeBusschere was the last major addition to the Knicks before it won its first NBA Championship in 1970. On the left front tail is the "Gerry Cosby" manufacturer's tag which is partially detached. Adjacent is the size "42” label. Across the front is "NEW YORK". On both the front and back is the player number "16". All these numbers and letters are done in orange on blue tackle twill. Player name "KOMIVES" appears across the back in blue tackle twill. The jersey is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion, shows excellent use including sweat staining on the inner collar. Accompanied by a LOA from Red Holzman's former secretary.
