Howie Dallmar was a mainstay in the old Basketball Association of America (BAA). He was a 6’ 4” forward who played in college at Stanford University and led the Cardinal to the 1942 NCAA Championship where he was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. After graduation, Dallmar became a pivotal member of the Philadelphia Warriors and he helped power that club to the league’s inaugural championship in the 1946-47 campaign. He was so good that he was named to the 1948 All-BAA team. During his three-season tenure – which coincided with the BAA becoming the NBA – Dallmar wore this Philadelphia Warriors home jersey.

An absolutely gorgeous hardwood relic, the cream-colored dureen pullover garment features “PHILA” arched across the chest in red-on-blue felt with his uniform number “12” sewn to the front and back in like fashion. Red-and-yellow striped stretch ribbed cotton lines the collar and arm yokes, and the interior of the vented left rear tail is home to a partially detached “Pearson” local manufacturer’s label. Just below that, a stitched outline remains from a since-removed tag. All original and unaltered, this vintage hardwood apparel shows solid game wear but has been well preserved. The felt identifiers still show vibrant hues and are free of pilling and separation commonly found on jerseys from this era. The item originates from the personal collection of Philadelphia hoops fixture Harvey Pollack, who obtained it from former Warriors owner Eddie Gottlieb when he sold the club to a San Francisco group in 1962.

Includes LOA from Pollack, the lone NBA employee who has been there since the league’s inception.
