Jumping to the rival ABA from the NBA in 1968, Rick Barry was the first dominant force and marquee name in the new league. Two years after acquiring Barry from the Washington Caps, the 1972 NY Nets advanced to the ABA finals, with Barry returning to the NBA after that storied season. Inside the left rear tail is the “Rawlings” manufacturer’s tag with size “44”. Attached is a blank white label that appears to have had something on it and has faded. Adjacent is a wash instructions tag. Across the front is “Nets” in script style lettering. Player number “24” appears on both the front and back. All numbers and letters are done in red on navy blue tackle twill. Player name “BARRY” appears across the back in red tackle twill with a blue embroidered border. Inside the rear waistband of the home white shorts is the “Rawlings” manufacturer’s tag with size “36”. Adjacent is a wash instructions tag and a felt strip tag with “12”. The shirts have a different uniform number written in that were worn by either John Barnhill or Marv Winkler. The uniform shows game-use and appears to have no alterations of any kind. The provenance on this warm-up is absolute. It was a gift from Rick Barry to NY Nets ball boy Al Trautwig. It is accompanied by a Trautwig LOA and further accompanied by a LOA from Rick Barry.
