Another nice collectible for your consideration. You are looking on one(1) 1956 Lowell High School Yearbook with future NBA star Tom Meschery. This product is for the 1956 Lowell High School Yearbook (San Francisco, California), titled "Red and White." In the Junior class of this yearbook, is future NBA star Tom Meschery. Meschery is shown in the Varsity Basketball Team group photo (page 24), is mentioned on the same page; is shown several times in basketball action photos (page 245) and is mentioned on playing basketball on page 246. He may be in other places in the book but there is no student index or like in the back. This was the centennial anniversary for the school and half the yearbook is dedicated to Lowell High School's history.

The yearbook is in very good condition. The previous owner has written his name in the book but I could find no other markings. The spine feels a little loose but the binding seems fine. See my other products for more high school yearbooks featuring future sport legends, political stars, celebrities (or pre-celeb's) and notables.

Former professional basketball player Thomas Nicholas "Tom" Meschery was born as Tomislav Nikolayevich Meshcheryakov, on October 26, 1938 in Manchuria, China, to Russian parents. A collegiate star at Saint Mary's College, Tom Meschery was selected by the Philadelphia Warriors in the 1st round (7th pick overall) in the 1961 NBA Draft. Meschery was with the Philadelphia/San Francisco Warriors (now the Golden State Warriors) from 1961-62 to 1966-67, playing alongside Wilt Chamberlain, and the Seattle SuperSonics from 1967-68 to 1970-71, joining the expansion franchise in it's inaugural year.

Noted as one of the toughest in the NBA, Meschery led the league in personal fouls in 1962 and played in the 1963 NBA All-Star Game, becmoing the first international player to play an All-Star game. After Meschery retired as a player, he spent a year coaching the ABA Carolina Cougars. Meschery has been inducted into the St Mary's Hall of Fame (HOF), his basketball jersey hangs in McKeon Pavilion on campus, and the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame (2003 induction). He has authored three books and is a Nevada Writers Hall of Fame member. His jersey, number 14, has been retired retired by the Golden State Warriors.
