Located in New Jersey before a move to Brooklyn in 2012, the Nets attended back to back finals in 2002 and 2003 behind Jason Kidd. The team won two ABA championships in 1974 and 1976 led by Julius "Dr. J" Erving. In total, the club spent 35 seasons in New Jersey.
This Official Nets Sweater is 1980s-90s authentic and was acquired by Vintage Sports in 2018. This new old stock item was made in the USA and shipped to Europe approximately 35 years ago to be sold at the military Post Exchange in Mannheim, Germany. The Post Exchange is normally located on US military bases throughout the world and meant to provide US products to American troops. After the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989, the US military emphasis began to shift away from Germany to the Balkans. The garrison at Mannheim, once one of the largest in Europe is now mostly a ghost town.
