I just want to say thank you for making the sales of the University of Arizona Basketball Vault a big success. A number of Arizona’s best and most loyal fans have seen it and purchased it.
All I do is show it and get out of the way. Read the reviews below and check out how to get one, too.
Many thanks to former players Joseph Blair, Matt Muehlebach, Reggie Geary, Steve Kerr, Sean Elliott (who wrote the afterward), Tom Tolbert, A.J. Bramlett, Gene Edgerson, Pete Williams, Ernie McCray,Harvey Mason, Channing Frye and Damon and Salim Stoudamire for helping me with their autographs.
And thanks to former UA coach Lute Olson for accompanying me for more than five book signings and current head coach Sean Miller for his autographs, too.
“What a book and what a concept!’’ said Sean Elliott, who wrote the book’s afterward. “Arizona is a special place and always will be for me. Great, epic games played. Great moments. And this book captures it all.’’
The book takes the reader through the century-plus history of Arizona basketball from the first game in 1904 through the 2009-10 season – from Bear Down Gym to McKale Center. This detailed “scrapbook’’ contains never-before-published photographs, artwork and memorabilia drawn from the UA athletic department and campus archives. Tucked into the dozen of sleeves and pockets, fans will find reproductions of historic game programs, numerous postcards and photos.
Included in the book are: a press pass from UA’s 1988 West regional victory over North Carolina, a 1997 national championship poster and a “1997 National Champions’’ replica felt pennant.
I hope everyone has enjoyed the product. A number of news outlets have promoted and I am grateful. Check the links out:
