    Description

    Circa 1976 "Basketball Superstars" Artist's Proof Signed by LeRoy Neiman. Neiman's "Basketball Superstars" was used for the cover of the 1977 NBA All-Star Game program. It's interesting how Neiman chose to include players from different eras and leagues, many of whom never played against each other. Central image depicts Wilt Chamberlain as a Laker dunking over Lew Alcindor (later Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) as a Buck with Julius Erving as a Net unsuccessfully trying to block Wilt from behind. Bill Russell, Willis Reed as a Knick and Oscar Robertson as a Royal are below the play. George McGinnis as a Sixer and Meadowlark Lemon as Globetrotter are down court with two other player who might be Bob McAdoo as a Brave and Walt Frazier as a Knick. The painting was probably done in 1975 or 1976, as McGinnis joined Philadelphia in 1975. Signed by Neiman in perfect pencil, the artist's proof is framed and matted at 35x39". Third-party shipping required. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
