Ad copy reads:
"Full color posters of Rick Barry, Pistol Pete or Wilt himself. To get yours, buy a Spalding Autograph basketball, clip the Spalding name off the box and mail it to the address below with $2. (Each poster is a $5 value!) Every Autograph ball has Spalding's durable rubber cover for a longer lasting bounce and a more natural tacky feel than any vinyl basketball made. That's what Rick, Pete and Wilt think. Or they wouldn't put their names on them."
Grabbed not only for the classic Golden State Warriors uniform complete with matching wristbands, but also the incredible deshiki looking shirt and sansa belt slacks wilt is rocking. It almost looked like he was giving Rick Barry the finger rather than pointing at hist armpit.

Ah yes, KangaROOS! My all time favorite athlete, Walter Payton, represented ROOS back in the day, so I had to get white ROOS cleats for baseball and football. What's up with that ad copy? "For men, women, kids of all kinds. For fun." Not mentioned in the copy is that back in the day, the ROOS velcro pockets were rumored to be the ideal storage spot for cocaine and it was an urban legend that wearing ROOS was an indicator to the rest of the world that you were 'holding". Such was not the case at my Catholic school's 4th grade class.
They should remake these- the hipsters of the world would eat these Rippers up!

Ahhhh, there's a slight nip in the air here in Phoenix (we've dropped below 90 degrees a few times lately) and a young man's thoughts turn to hockey- despite the fact that the Coyotes have their bags packed for points unknown. You absolutely must drop everything and watch this short film! Great vintage hockey sweaters throughout!
thanks to Uniwatch for the heads up!
