Ex-ABA Star Still Gets Kick Out of Autograph Requests

$50 Off $250 at Steiner Sports with code JETER50

Rich Jones played in the heyday of the American Basketball Association. He used to patrol the paint. Now he’s patrolling the floor of a casino.

He played against most of the greats during the early 1970s. Julius Erving is still a friend. Over thirty years since his playing days ended, Rich Jones is still getting fan mail. He’s happy to oblige. After all, good public relations is part of his job as a security official with a Vegas casino.

But if only he’d saved a little more memorabilia from his playing days.
