Hall of Fame center Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was the star player in college basketball during his first season with the UCLA Bruins in 1966-67. Abdul-Jabbar, then known as Lew Alcindor, exploded for an average of 29 points and 15.5 rebounds per game as UCLA charged to a perfect 30-0 record and the first of their three straight NCAA titles. Abdul-Jabbar earned the Final Four Most Outstanding Player award for the first of three consecutive years while seizing almost every other meaningful college basketball accolade available.

Offered here is the U.S. Basketball Writers Association Player of the Year award for 1966-67 presented to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. This shield-shaped plaque measures approximately 10.5 x 11 inches at its widest dimensions and is adorned with two gold torches affixed to the plaque. A smaller plaque reads “U.S. Basketball Wristers Association / Player Of The Year 1966-67 / Lew Alcindor / U.C.L.A.” This plaque exhibits some minor weathering but is in otherwise superb condition. This historically significant award derives directly from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and a personally hand-signed LOA from Kareem will accompany this item.
