I know it was around 1980 because I had a line of reporting to Dean Mary Maloney who was a big Johnny fan and had one in her office.


I have a piece very cool!!

I have one as well. In my "yute", I had a home office in my basement where I displayed lots of sports memorabilia. Most of it was St John's related. I had game used NBA jerseys from Mark Jackson (Knicks), Mel Davis (Knicks), Bill Wennington (Sacremento), Walter Berry (Spurs), Chris Mullin (Warriors) and a few others. I also had game used autographed sneakers from Billy Paultz, Bill Wennington, Mark Jackson and a few other guys. I also had several St John's autographed team pictures (including Looie's last season). I was friends with Dutch Ouderkirk (former equipment manager at St John's) and he gave me several game used St John's jerseys. When the kids moved out and we downsized to a condo, my wife insisted that I divest myself of my collection so I donated all of it to the St John's athletic department to be auctioned at various events to raise money for scholarships.

The only piece I still have is a game used basketball warmup jacket that says St John's on the front and Redmen on the back. That one is a keeper.

Robert Werdann's grandfather helped lay the original CA floor in 1961.

Part of Mark Redman's collection is now proudly on display in my mancave. Very grateful to your wife for encouraging you to downsize and to you for keeping the history in the Redmen family!

When my time comes (from downsizing or otherwise), there will be clear instructions to ensure these find their way into the hands of another St. John's supporter!
