Special Basketball Team

In Muscatine on Wednesday, December 22, 1954, Dale and Dalene went to the high school gymnasium to watch the Harlem Magicians play basketball.  Dale described it as “Punk” in his diary.  The team was formed by former Harlem Globetrotters star and Hall of Famer Marques Haynes in 1953.  Goose Tatum was also on the team.  Below: one of their vintage posters.
