    1970's Leroy Neiman Signed "Basketball Superstars" Print. 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 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. Matted and framed 35x40". Numbered "119/300" and signed by the artist. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph).

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
