Issued at San Francisco’s famed Cow Palace to one of 13,972 spectators, this 1967 NBA All-Star Game ticket stub hails from an era during which such exhibitions brought out the best in their competitors. Measuring 5-15/16 x 2-3/4”, the thick stock voucher features head shots of the (10) scheduled starters, with Chamberlain headlining the East roster and MVP Barry highlighting the victorious West lineup. Accenting the piece are the event’s Golden Gate-themed logo and the facsimile signature of Commissioner J. Walter Kennedy. With sharp edges/corners and a blank reverse, the item presents nicely with period handwritten notations correcting the starting lineups (Greer started in place of Jones and Baylor got the nod in favor of Howell, as indicated in ballpoint).
Also present is a dated 1/12/71 21st Annual N.B.A. All-Star Game voucher. This 2-1/4 x 4-1/2 silver stub presents (VG) with a crease along the upper right corner barely affecting the presentation. The instantly recognizable Jerry West silhouette logo is vibrant with crisp red and blue hues. The announced attendance for the contest held in San Diego was 14,378 spectators. Lenny Wilkens was named MVP.
