When Pete Maravich found his shooting touch, opposing defenses could do absolutely nothing to stop him. Perhaps the best example of this came in the New Orleans Jazz's February 25, 1977 game against the New York Knicks, in which Maravich drained 26 field goals and 16 free throws to score 68 points against a defensively sound Knicks team. Maravich's 68, his single-game high, was the NBA record for a guard until Michael Jordan dropped 69 points on the Cleveland Cavaliers in a 1990 overtime game, so it still stands as the record for a non-overtime game. This Wilson Official NBA basketball was the game ball from Maravich's 68 point game and was presented to "Pistol Pete" after the game. "Wilson Official NBA" is stamped onto the ball in black and a circle with an "X" in it has been drawn below the stamping in black marker. The panel below that has then-commissioner Lawrence F. O'Brien's signature stamped onto the ball in black and "R.L." appears below that in black marker. The panel above the "Wilson Official NBA" panel has been painted white and "Pete Maravich 68 Points Feb. 25, 1977" has been written on that panel in black marker. The ball comes to us directly from Pete's wife Jackie Maravich and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from her. Includes VHS copy of the game.
