During his three seasons playing for the UCLA Bruins, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar cemented a legacy as one of the most dominant players in college basketball history. The lanky New Yorker, known then as Lew Alcindor, led UCLA to the NCAA title in each of his three seasons at Westwood, finishing his career with gaudy averages of 26.4 points and 15.5 assists and compiled an astonishing 88-2 overall record. Abdul-Jabbar earned a wide range of accolades during his career at UCLA, including three straight Final Four Most Outstanding Player awards and the inaugural Naismith College Player of the Year award in 1969.

Offered here is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 1967-1968-1969 NCAA Tournament Most Valuable Player trophy obtained directly from Kareem himself. This hefty award measures just under 35 inches tall. The base is an 11.5 x 11.5-inch pedestal topped by a large trophy and an approximately 14-inch tall statuette of a basketball player shooting a hook shot. A plaque on the base of the trophy reads “Lewis Alcindor / UCLA / Most Valuable Player / NCAA Tournament / 1967-1968-1969”. Please note that minor restoration has been performed on the left leg of the statuette, but the trophy itself is in overall good condition. Truly a museum quality piece and this item derives directly from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and a personally hand-signed LOA from Kareem will accompany this item.

Please note that this lot has a 25% Buyer’s Premium (28% if payment is made using a credit card and/or is not paid within 10 days of invoice). Goldin Auctions will be donating 5% of the winning bid price to The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
