ADDENDUM: THERE WAS A TYPO IN THE CATALOG. THE OPENING BID IS $3500, NOT $2500.
Originally purchased in the historic Naismith Collection auction of 2006, this near perfect signed and inscribed card from the father of basketball comes directly from Naismith's personal collection. Perfect looking 9-10/10 black fountain pen inscription reads "James Naismith, Lawrence Kans, 1939", and captures Naismith’s historic connection with the University of Kansas. Measuring 2.5" wide by 4" tall, this basketball-themed card provides a simple, precise, and uncluttered autograph from the game’s inventor. Card itself is very clean NM looking condition. Naismith died later that same year, leaving behind what many would claim to be the greatest sport ever created.
Signed LOA from Dr. James Naismith's granddaughter.
