Lot #14: NBA 50 Greatest Players Litho Completely Signed - AP LE 15/30 (PSA/DNA & NBA Field of Dreams COA)

Description

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the NBA, league officials took on the Herculean task of naming the 50 greatest players in NBA history. This list consists of players from the earliest days of the sport such as George Mikan and Paul Arizin, while also recognizing the great players of the current era, namely Shaquille O’Neal, Michael Jordan, and David Robinson. When this list was dreamt up, before the 1996-97 season, the 50 honored players had accumulated 107 NBA Championships, 49 Most Valuable Player Awards, 17 Rookie of the Year honors, 447 All-Star Game selections, 36 scoring titles, 923,791 total points and 410,327 total rebounds.

This 25 x 39-inch un-framed lithograph has been signed by 49 of the 50 greatest players, with “Pistol” Pete Maravich, who passed away in 1988, the lone missing signature. The signature of NBA commissioner David Stern brings the total number up to 50 signatures. This lithograph has been signed by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Nate Archibald, Paul Arizin, Charles Barkley, Rick Barry, Elgin Baylor, Dave Bing, Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Bob Cousy, Dave Cowens, Billy Cunningham, Dave DeBusschere, Clyde Drexler, Julius Erving, Patrick Ewing, Walt Frazier, George Gervin, Hal Greer, John Havlicek, Elvin Hayes, Magic Johnson, Sam Jones, Michael Jordan, Jerry Lucas, Karl Malone, Moses Malone, Kevin McHale, George Mikan, Earl Monroe, Hakeem Olajuwon, Shaquille O’Neal, Robert Parish, Bob Pettit, Scottie Pippen, Willis Reed, Oscar Robertson, David Robinson, Bill Russell, Dolph Schayes, Bill Sharman, John Stockton, Isiah Thomas, Nate Thurmond, Wes Unseld, Bill Walton, Jerry West, Lenny Wilkens and James Worthy in gray pencil.
