At the beginning of the year I found interesting collection of old NBA games. AP Archive has a lot of rare, unavailable footage that is, unfortunately, not digitized. To get this footage I have to pay for digitization and it is quite expansive, as these are not tapes but films.
That's why I created Patreon account to collect money for these games (and other in future):
If you don't know me, I am running the YT channel about NBA history:
Each of game costs around $225, for anyone interested in this topic, please follow my Patreon site. Right now I can tell you that I found 1 game from 1964 NBA finals, two new games from 1970 NBA finals and around 5 RS and 5 playoffs games from 1964-72 period. There are games with Wilt, West, Kareem, Oscar, Baylor, Frazier, Reed, Thurmond and many others. Games are likely in excellent quality too, most of them in color.
I also found around 50 shorter clips from variety of 1960s and 1970s games, but the priority are longer films.
The first game that I would like to purchase is game 3 of 1964 NBA finals.
