    Wilt Chamberlain Kansas Lineup Card And Professional Debut Newspaper Lineup sheet from Missouri vs. Kansas basketball game during Wilt's junior season with the Jayhawks. In Chamberlain's junior year, the 1957-58 NCAA season, the Jayhawks' matches were frustrating for him. Knowing how dominant Chamberlain was, the opponents resorted to freeze-ball tactics and routinely used three or more players to guard him. Teammate Bob Billings commented: "It was not fun basketball... we were just out chasing people throwing the basketball back and forth." In addition, Chamberlain grew weary of the punishment inflicted on him; after a game against Missouri, he showed imprints of two rows of teeth in his arm. Also included in this lot is a laminated sheet from the Pittsburg Sun October 27,1959. The page six article discusses in detail the professional debut of Wilt Chamberlain, comparing him to George Mikan, going so far as to say he may be better than Mikan.
