On February 10, 1968, the closing night of the old Madison Garden, members of the original 1946-47 New York Knicks team were welcomed back as honorary guests, and they were given these jackets as well as a clock (which is offered in another lot) to commemorate the occasion. This heavy wool jacket has a Gerry Cosby tag in the collar and is dark blue with a blue-and-orange trim. The back of the jacket reads “Original Knicks” in large, white lettering, with “1946-1947” stitched in orange lettering between the two words. This jacket provides a rare opportunity to acquire a Knicks item that we have never seen before. This jacket is in simply beautiful condition with one pin-sized hole on the back of the collar noted for accuracy only.
