Default Wilt Chamberlain 8x10 (team issued?) photo help..


I recently purchased this Wilt Chamberlain 8x10 and was wondering if anyone knew what year it is from. It looks very similar to some team issued photographs I've seen of him (one from around 1960, another attributed to 1964 and one from 1966 or 67).

I don't think it s a 1960. Here are two from 1960 that have a stripe across the uniform that isn't on yours.

A rookie jersey SCP auctioned in 2015 shows the stripe:

My head through the hoop one is newspaper archive dated to November 1960. It also matches a 1960 action shot I have of Wilt and Bill slugging it out. I will see if I can find a scan of that one.

Thanks! I tried to match the uniform with no success. The only other thing I came up with was the fact that it had him listed at 250 pounds while a later team issued photo of him had him at 275.

Besides that though, I haven't been able to come up with much....
