1969 Carolina Cougars TeeRegular price $34.00
In the late 1960's, none of North Carolina's metropolitan areas were large enough to support a professional sports franchise on its own, so the Cougars were branded as a "regional" team and despite being technically based out of Greensboro, played their "home" games in a variety of arenas across the state.
Although the Cougars were moderately successful overall during their run from 1969-74 and had one of the most loyal fan bases in the ABA, talks toward an ABA-NBA merger were in the final stages, and it had become apparent that a "regional" franchise would not be viable in the NBA.
The Cougars were sold to a consortium of New York businessmen and moved to St. Louis for the '74-75 season and renamed the Spirit of St. Louis.
