To enhance the NBA's 50th Anniversary celebrations in 1996, an awe-inspiring, limited-edition lithograph was unveiled during that season's All-Star Game festivities. The majestic 25" x 39" piece bore the title, “National Basketball Association 50 Greatest Players 1946-1996,” and displayed the likenesses of all 50 NBA legends. Many players commented at the time that their inclusion on the print's elite roster was one of their greatest basketball honors. After all, membership in the NBA's "50 Greatest Players" club is far more exclusive than the Basketball Hall of Fame!

Presented here is high-quality, unsigned rendering of that prized litho creation's design. The evocative print (which displays an embossed "NBA 50" logo but is not serial-numbered) is surrounded in a painstakingly gathered and carefully constructed assembly by individual trading cards, one representing each member. Each of these fifty cards has been single-signed in ink by its esteemed subject.

Included among this display's pantheon of hardcourt immortals (several of whom are now deceased) are: George Mikan, Oscar Robertson, Elvin Hayes, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Willis Reed, John Stockton, Hakeem Olajuwon, Bill Russell, Dave Cowens, Walt Frazier, John Havlicek, Charles Barkley, Pete Maravich, Elgin Baylor, Nate Thurmond, Hal Greer, Clyde Drexler, Wilt Chamberlain, Paul Arizin, Jerry Lucas, George Gervin, Larry Bird, Scottie Pippen, Jerry West, Dolph Schayes, Dave DeBusschere, Shaq O'Neal, Moses Malone, Earl Monroe, Dave Bing, Bob Cousy, Julius Erving, Magic Johnson, Bill Cunningham, Wes Unseld, Kevin McHale, Michael Jordan, Sam Jones, Rick Barry, Bob Pettit, Nate Archibald, Bill Walton, Isiah Thomas, Lenny Wilkens, Bill Sharman, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, James Worthy, Robert Parrish and David Robinson. This "50 Greatest Players" autographed-card display comfortably reigns as one of the most impressive and desirable modern-day basketball collectibles imaginable. LOA from PSA/DNA.
