Mid-1980s Golden State Warriors gold uniforms?

Recommended Posts

According to the sportslogos.net Golden State Warriors page, by 1984-85, the team switched to white jerseys as their home uniform (pictured here: http://www.sportslogos.net/logos/view/27kwzpmppb9bfyaybday5meei/Golden_State_Warriors/1985/Home_Uniform)

 

However, I came across this ad from 1985 that shows them wearing gold equivalents of their mid-1980s set, with purely blue striping on the jersey and waistband:

Does anybody know whether this set was ever worn in an actual game?

I've got some pics of it in action in a preseason game against the Sonics (who are wearing their home unis). I'll try and dig them out when I get home from work.

I will have to hunt down some pictures, but I am fairly sure Mullin played in the gold jerseys during his rookie season.

 

EDIT:

There tends to be some discrepancies on the mothership when it comes to NBA dates (especially pre-1990 NBA), mainly because there hasn't been as much research done compared to pro baseball and football.

So, based on what we know, the Warriors wore gold at home for a limited time well into the mid-1980s.
