Kareem Abdul-Jabbar ended his historic collegiate basketball career in 1969 after a dominant three season run with the UCLA Bruins. Abdul-Jabbar won the NCAA title in each of his three seasons in Westwood, finishing the 1969 campaign with a 92-72 demolition of John Wooden’s alma mater, the Purdue Boilermakers. Abdul-Jabbar dismantled Purdue’s frontcourt to the tune of 37 points and 20 rebounds on 15-20 shooting from the field. After the season, Abdul-Jabbar was named the winner of the first ever Naismith Award for the outstanding player in NCAA Division I Basketball.

Guffin, the sports editor of UPI, in blue marker. This item comes with a LOA signed by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
