Dad was a big fan.

Costs worked for the Spirits of St. Louis in the ABA. Listened to him when I was a kid. Great stories in the book "Loose Balls".

Default Hawks Autographed Team Picture

This is the same picture that Al posted to start this thread. It is autographed on the back by all 12 pictured Hawks. I have an unsigned pic that someday I will have matted side-by-side.

Default 1965-66 St. Louis Hawks Schedule

This is a single fold Hawks sched from 1965-66. On the inside you will notice where I marked with a 7th grader's anticipation, the first game I ever attended. My dad and I had a blast!

I never dreamed that they would move out of town and that was the only Hawks game I ever saw.


M101-4 collectors will notice that the Hawks had ticket offices at 4 Famous-Barr Department stores.

Default St Louis Spirits

In the mid 70s I was a new attorney for Southwestern Bell which was at the time a sub of AT&T. I ended up trying to recover a cell phone for non payment from Marvin Barnes, I think after he left the team. Back in those days cell phones were expensive and big...in a briefcase

He was aptly nicknamed "Moo-vin'" Marvin Barnes. You weren't the only one looking for him.

Default Hey, Hawks Collectors

Take look at the Stan Musial bat over on the Vintage Memorabilia Forum for a possible connection to ALR-bishop's Hawks programs posted above.

Yes, five Hall of Famers. As I posted in the other thread on photos:

Not only a lot of HOFers. Father of a future player, Bob father of Danny Ferry. Also four players who would later play with the Celtics - Lovellette, Macauley, Green and McCarthy. Lovellette, Green and McCarthy would play on championship teams with them. I believe Lovellette was the first player to win an NCAA championship, Olympic gold medal and NBA Championship.

The ATL got Maravich with a pre-Bieber haircut and some interesting uniforms.

Before Atlanta
Before St. Louis
Before Milwaukee
Before Tri City
It was Buffalo For 38 days

1946 the first year of the BAA. The NBL had been struggling along for 20 years and seeing the competition they expanded. This is a program from the 2nd Buffalo home game. Coached by Nat Hickey and had star player Pop Gates. I have a 1st game program around here somewhere.

Love the St. Louis Hawks. Have Greg Marecek's 2 books about them plus some photos & memorabilia. I have this 11x 14 licensed photofile photo with original signatures. Not sure why the promotor (who did the reunion) didn't get Bridges to sign it as he was around when the photo was made.

Cool stuff, Art! Don't feel bad about the last three 1951 Topps. There just aren't many Roberts, Konstanty and Stankeys out there. I have never seen that Hawks glass before. I have two others that I will post when I get some good pics.
