Pete Maravich stepped onto the court in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1967 and took the college basketball world by storm. After three years he emerged as the greatest offensive player in NCAA history. Recognized for his shaggy brown hair, Maravich averaged 43.8 ppg as a sophomore and 44.2 as a junior. "Pistol" would graduate with 3,667 career points, a 44.2 scoring average and would score 50 or more points 28 times over his 83-game career at LSU. These accomplishments were made more astonishing by the fact that Maravich was a jump shooter who played before the introduction of the three-point line. At the time Freshman were not allowed to play on the Varsity team, so Maravich holds these records in just three seasons. Not surprisingly, Maravich moved on to the NBA and became a Hall of Famer. After retiring from professional basketball, Maravich tragically died at the age of 40 after playing a game of pickup basketball. Presented is Maravich’s LSU letterman jacket sourced from the Maravich family that he wore for all three years. Inside the rear neck is the Wilson manufacturer’s tag size “42” with additional notations added in handwritten period faded black marker. Embroidered on a purple strip tag inside the left pocket is “Pete Maravich” in gold chain stitching. The left chest features a beautiful LSU team “L” logo in gold colored chenille with a team logo inside. This jacket has remained in pristine condition. Sourced from the Maravich family this relic is accompanied by a Maravich family LOA.
