Number crunchers take your game to the next level with this prolific hoard of basketball yearbooks. Longtime Philadelphia 76ers Director of Statistical Information Harvey Pollack never met a stat he didn’t like. Indeed he is credited with inventing a number of important categories. Every stat you want to know and even those you don’t are crammed into this lot of unread books. Though a percentage show light to moderate wear, the overwhelming majority present in “like-new” condition. Sadly the preeminent stats guru went to the great court in the sky in June of this year, with the distinction of being the last original employee from the NBA’s inaugural 1946-47 season still employed in the League.


These fascinating guides are filled with results from the year prior to issue and also from all-time NBA history, along with a variety of interesting tidbits such as “players with same last names as presidents”, “population of NBA cities”, “opposition bench scoring”, “NBA’s 60-win seasons” and “California leader in breeding players”. Of course all the basics and fundamentals are recorded as well, making these reference books a sought after source of reliable information. Obviously this lot is targeted for resellers, but if this sort of thing feeds your soul or perhaps you just like winning bar bets, then the asking price seems reasonable enough should decide to keep only a single copy of each edition.


The complete list of included editions is as follows: (13) 1995-96, (27) 1996-97, (9) 1997-98, (12) 1998-99, (22) 1999-00, (18) 2000-01, (57) 2001-02, (97) 2002-03, (7) 2003-04, (23) 2004-05, (28) 2005-06, (36) 2006-07, (5) 2007-08, (6) 2008-09, (30) 2009-10, (5) 2010-11, (7) 2011-12, (10) 2012-13, (24) 2013-14
