Let's see some team issued photos and cards?
One a day, let's round robin it and keep it going. I will lead off with this one:

1960-61 Celtics team issue Bill Russell

Adam love that Russell. Great thread. Hopefully we can see some great team issued cards etc.. This an Alcindor/Jabbar publicity card from 1969. Not sure of the accuracy of the year but the seller seemed sure.

Hard to find Celtic team issued postcard. Been looking for an autographed Cousy one. Scratch is on the case.

Great stuff! I've never seen either issue before.

Here's a 1950s team issue of Lakers HOFer Jim Pollard. About PC sized.

Here are a few more postcards. Celtics stuff is crazy. There were team issued postcards, some 8x10's. Then the photo packs which were lesser quality. Then sometimes paper pictures stuck in the programs. Probably impossible to catalog it all.

1960 Warriors:

FWIW, the hoop is 10 feet above the ground, backboard top is 13 feet and the basketball itself is 9.5" diameter. So Wilt's arm is about 12.5 feet off the ground. No wonder they had to change goaltending rules.

This is a team issued Cousy. I believe its from 1951-52 or 52-53 season. I have a similar picture of Bones McKinney who did not play for the Celtics in 52-53. However, Cousy is pictured on some 51-52 program covers as still wearing number 15 but then again those might be stock photographs from 50-51 so I have some difficulty completely determining the year. Cousy started his career as number 15 then switched to 14.
