Under legendary coach John Wooden, the UCLA Bruins dominated NCAA basketball during the 1968-69 season, finishing with an overall record of 29-1. They were ranked number one in the polls all season, which ended with a 92-72 victory over Purdue in the National Final. Abdul-Jabbar, known then as Lew Alcindor, averaged 24.0 points and 14.7 rebounds per game while winning the nation’s Player of the Year Award. Curtis Rowe contributed nicely to the Bruins’ success (12.9 points and 7.9 rebounds per contest), while John Vallely scored 11.0 points per game.

Offered here is a Balfour manufactured 10K gold 1969 Lew Alcindor UCLA Bruins NCAA national championship ring, featuring a blue stone top with “UCLA N.C.A.A. CHAMPIONS” reading around it. The right side of the ring lists the championship year 1969 above other title years of 1967 and 1968. “BRUINS” appears on the opposite side, amid relief design that includes a basketball. The inside of the band includes the manufacturer “LGB” and 10K marks, as well as the initials “LA”.  This ring weighs approximately 22.9 grams and is an approximate size 11 ½. The item comes directly from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and a personally hand-signed LOA from Kareem also accompanies this item.
