Heavy, metal 15-1/2" by 8" newspaper printing plate pictures the Celtics "Champs". Each pictured member of the squad is dribbling a basketball with letters spelling out "Champs" on them. Image is reversed on the plate to print correctly on paper. Pictured are; Red Auerbach, Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, Sam Jones, Frank Ramsey, and Tommy Heinsohn. This group was together with the Celtics from the years 1957 through 1963, so the photo could be from any of years 1958-59 through 1962-63 when the Celtics won consecutive World Championships.

Framed. EXMT.

Includes letter of provenance from the Red Auerbach estate.
