Roger Brown Pacers ABA Basketball Scandal HOF signed 3x5 index card PSA/DNA

A 6'5" forward/guard, Brown starred at Brooklyn's George W. Wingate High School and signed to play for the University of Dayton in 1960. However, he and fellow Brooklyn star Connie Hawkins were banned from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and National Basketball Association (NBA) when it was revealed that while still in high school he had been introduced to a gambler, Jack Molinas, who was involved in illegal point shaving. Brown was never accused of point shaving and his only crime was associating with Molinas. With the NCAA and NBA ban in place, he continued to play basketball in Dayton's amateur leagues, and in 1967 signed with the American Basketball Association (ABA)'s Indiana Pacers. During his eight-year (1967–1975) ABA career, spent with the Pacers, Memphis Sounds, and Utah Stars, Brown scored 10,498 points, appeared in four All-Star games, and earned three Championship rings. Brown was one of seven players unanimously selected to the ABA All-Time Team in 1997. He is one of four players (the others are Reggie Miller, George McGinnis, and Mel Daniels) to have his jersey (#35) retired by the Pacers. He was elected Postumously to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.

We offer an extremely rare signed 3x5 card in blue ball point pen (circa early 70's).  He died way too young. His autograph is very scarce as not many people bothered to get his autograph and when you do find them, it’s usually on multi-signed items!
