    1959 Wilt Chamberlain Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. FYI - Comes with full PSA Type 1 LOA.

    Wilt said that one of the reasons he left Kansas after his junior season was because of excessive fouling. Also, the Globetrotters offered him a lot of money - about $50,000 for the 1958-59 season. Wilt also said that his Globetrotter days were the best times of his life. The unique aerial image presented here captures The Big Dipper jumping straight up from directly under the basket, placing his head fully inside the net and the ball on the rim. Such things are possible when you are 7-1 1/8" tall with a vertical jump over forty inches. Verso stamp reads "Plain Dealer - News Library. Nov 18 1958." Measures 7.75x9.5" and NRMT. Full PSA Type 1 LOA.
