Coincidently I came here to post this picture. I've been buying some old Eastern Basketball Magazine editions (EB was awesome back in the day) doing a bit of research on the Gaels, and I came across this ad. I believe this is the first iteration of the A-10.

Excellent find. That would have been season 3 for the Eastern 8, as SBU is listed. They replaced Penn State that year, 1979-80. And Villanova is listed and they left the following season replaced by URI.
I believe a SBU alum was a big contributor to Eastern Basketball, IIRC. That was a great magazine, second only to MAD during my youth (and maybe SI, haha!).
