I will look for that. Miller and the McGee twins at USC was quite a team. After I finish posting the photos I have scanned I will scan and post the photos I have of Cheryl Miller at USC and 84 Olympics.

They are from left to right Terry Johnson, Dana Sue Fortenberry, Kim Mulkey and Michelle Anderson. They were members of the Metro Domino's National Junior Olympic basketball team. The caption does not state if they all went to Hammond High. Mulkey was Hammond class valedictorian in 1980. There was a Joe Fortenberry who was a member of the 1936 Olympic basketball team. He was from Texas. Jeff Fortenberry, the U.S. Rep from Nebraska who just resigned grew up in Baton Rouge. Hammond is just east of there. It is possible she is related to him.

I have posted quite a few photos. I thought I would add something a bit older. The first Olympic basketball tournament was held during the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition in St. Louis. It is also referred to as the 1904 World's Fair. The Olympic events were secondary to the Expo. As such the programs will list events, but you would not see rosters of entrants like you would in a regular program. On July 12, 1904 the Buffalo Germans of the Buffalo YMCA would win the first ever Olympic basketball tournament. They were the first team inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. There is some disagreement as to whether this can be considered truly Olympic as there were no foreign teams and it was the AAU Championships. The OlyMadmen, a small group of Olympic researchers, to which I contribute but am not considered a member, view it as a demonstration sport. The business manager, coach and star of the team, Alfred Heerdt would later coach the Buffalo Bisons in the ABL (1925-26) and in the NBL (1937-38).

Here is the program from July 12, 1904.

I don't know if one even exists, if so, I would love to get my hands on a playing-days (1950-56) postcard of Chuck Cooper.

It is quite possible there is a Celtics or St Louis Hawks team issued one for him.

I have not seen a team issued postcard of Cooper as a Celtic. He did have several program covers. There are also some playing days signed GPCs out there.

Terrific photos!

I've sold a lot of my vintage basketball photos but will check to see if I have any good ones to post.

At the moment, I'm working through some really neat 120mm and 35mm negatives but have no idea how to get a good scan of those....

Willie Scrill (1907-1977)

Willie Scrill signed to play professional basketball right out of high school with his hometown Brooklyn Visitation at age 18. Depleted by the defections of veterans Rody Cooney and Red Conaty to the newly-formed American Basketball League, the Visitation thrust the youngster into the starting lineup. In his very first pro season, the youthful Scrill very quickly established two things that would remain constants throughout his career. First, he was a very talented, at times brilliant player. Second, he had a very short fuse that could be ignited in an instant. Scrill once got into a fight with an opponent while the teams were warming up before a game. During the 1930-31 ABL finals, Scrill attacked referee Chuck Solodare after a double overtime loss, but went unpunished. Season after season, Scrill ranked as the most aggressive, combative players in pro basketball. Scrill spent his first eleven seasons in pro basketball with the Visitation and was a member of three championship teams. In 1934-35, Scrill lost his job to 20-year-old phenom, Bobby McDermott, and signed with the rival Jersey Reds. In 1936-37, Scrill enjoyed the best season of career. He led Jersey to first place in the first-half of the split ABL season with a 14-4 record. Scrill continued his outstanding play through the playoffs, but the Reds lost to the Philadelphia SPHAS in a seven-game thriller decided in overtime by a single point. For his stellar play, he was named the MVP of the 1936-37 ABL season. Scrill, at the very pinnacle of his career, retired in the off- season to become a New York City fireman.

Alan,

Other than getting a few items signed by Spencer Haywood I will either be Waldo (anywhere) or Elvis (everywhere). I find little to nothing at the show. The only booth I know I will visit is that of Rhys Yeakley (prewar sports on here) Let me know if you are going and I will send along my phone number.

I will be getting copies of photos from my archives signed by Haywood along with the following:

68-basketball-gold.jpg

Tickets from the gold medal basketball game 1968 Olympics.

ajman.jpg

Postal souvenir sheet issued in 1968. I picked up over 30 of these for dirt cheap. I will only get one signed. The rest will be for the remaining living players. Unfortunately there are only 5 members of the team still living - Bill Hoskett, Glynn Saulters, Charlie Scott and Jim King along with Haywood. Hoskett and Saulters are good TTM. I have not located Jim King. I usually send three of this type of item. Sign 2 keep 1. I do the same with photos in my collection. The Olympians appreciate getting photos they have never seen except for possibly in the newspaper.

That is a page in the July 12 program for the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition aka World's Fair. That program is currently in an auction.
