79-81 Keith Brown

Keith was always known for being one of the strongest guys in the league, although he rarely dropped the gloves.  If he had not been hurt during the '92 Finals, would the Hawks have lost?  Maybe, but I bet they would not have been swept.

80-82 Keith Brown Coane Dureen road.  The jersey shows great use, 12 repairs, great interior pilling, some unrepaired holes and snags, stick marks, stains and paint transfers as well.  Has a snap-style fight strap and some of the stitching on the interior elbow reinforcements has come undone and they have "rolled" a bit.  Gunzo's tag is torn, but most of it is still in the neck with the Coane size tag.  Great jersey.
 
This jersey was a one year (supposed to be anyway) style used in 79-80 made by Coane (Note the wide black stripes on the hem).  However, in 80-81, Sandow supplied the Hawks jerseys for the first time and they came in too long... they evidently looked like dresses on the players, so they were sent back to Sandow to be hemmed.  (Sandow black script Hawks jerseys have the bottoms re-hemmed).  This set was then reused in first half of 80-81.  I recently have also video matched this jersey to the 1st road game of 81-82... so they very likely used this jersey in 3 seasons!
 
That said, originally, this jersey looks to possibly have been a #18 used by Greg Fox in 79-80, recycled to a #4 Keith Brown in 80-81.  Brown might have worn it in 79-80 as well, still researching...  He wore #25 at one time, so perhaps his entire rookie year of 79-80.

Note the thick black stripes on the hem, unique to the Coane jerseys.

881-82 Topps card

I believe this picture to be a match, looks to be the stain on the front hem in the pic.  Also note the positioning of the crest (almost touching the neck) and the thick Coane-style stripes.
