Denver Nuggets Primary Logo 1974 - 1976

The Nuggets first logo was “Maxie the Miner”. The red, blue and white miner was a “Yukon Cornelius” looking prospector who was giddy, leaping in the air, holding a ABA basketball and a prospecting pick axe. A wordmark “Denver Nuggets” arched around the miner in blue with a unique font.
