This program comes from the second day of games of the newly formed NBA (at the time called the BAA) on November 2, 1946, chronicling a match between the New York Knickerbockers and Chicago Stags. The Stags, who would barely make it out of the decade, were playing their first ever game, while the Knicks, one of the NBA's most iconic franchises, were playing their second. The Stags were led by Max Zaslofsky, who would lead the league in scoring the following year, and made it to the BAA Finals but lost to the Philadelphia Warriors. The Knicks, meanwhile, were led in scoring that year by Bud Palmer, considered to be one of the inventors of the jump shot. There is some minor wear to the edges, but it is overall in EX-MT condition.
