Denver Nuggets Primary Logo 1976 - 1981

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” in red and “Nuggets” in blue with a unique font.
