High-resolution NBA photos from various eras

Postby Daex on Mon Aug 27, 2018 6:01 pm

There's a person on NBA subreddit who compiled a large number (hundreds) of high-resolution photos of NBA (and ABA). I thought this could be really useful for anyone working on retro rosters or mods. Here are the links, collections are separated by eras:

40s, 50s & 60s: https://imgur.com/a/6kT84Jz
70s: https://imgur.com/a/wsKLIFQ
80s: https://imgur.com/a/8a9NGTw
90s: https://imgur.com/a/5L9REIl
2000s: https://imgur.com/a/mNczwHP

Tip: To see the full size image, it's not enough to just zoom in from the main link. Instead, open the image in the new tab like this: https://i.imgur.com/6FpTPcF.jpg and then zoom in.

Credit to reddit user u/macgarnickle for compiling these lists as well as the original photographers :D

Thanks for sharing! Hopefully it's something we'll be able to put to use for retro mods across various titles.
