The Cleveland Cavaliers began as an expansion team in 1970. In 1983, the team changed from their wine and gold color way to orange, blue, and white. This color way would last until 2003 when they switched back to the franchise's original wine and gold that they still have today. In their orange and blue, the Cavs would make it to the playoffs in 1984, 87-89, 91-95, and 97. In 2003, with their return to original colors, the Cavs would, of course, draft LeBron James and would begin their shift towards a team that was regularly considering championship contenders, until eventually taking the trophy home in 2016. This vintage Cavs shirt is in great condition, and perfect for a fan from any era. Slight cracking on print. 50% Cotton 50% Polyester.
