    1955-56 George Mikan Minneapolis Lakers Player's Contract.
    Voted the greatest basketball player of the first half of the twentieth century, George Mikan's contributions to the sport and his franchise are monumental. At DePaul, he was a three-time All-American, two-time College Player of the Year, and National Champion. In his eight full pro seasons, his team won the title seven times. That's called domination. The Mikan contract on offer here is important in that it serves as a window into the manner in which early NBA contracts were structured and NBA players were compensated. Designations for exhibition, regular, playoff, and TV-playoff games. It consists of an "Amendment to January 10, 1955 agreement" and "Recapitulation - George Mikan Contract" dated March 26, 1956. Signed "George L. Mikan" of the "Minneapolis Basketball Corporation" in bold, black ink. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
