The 1970-71 Milwaukee Bucks were built around one of the NBA’s early versions of the Big Three. The Bucks swung a deal to add 10-year veteran guard Oscar Robertson to a core of second-year players in Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then Lew Alcindor) and Bob Dandridge. The result was electrifying. The Bucks won 66 games, including a then-record 20-game winning streak, on their way to the franchise’s only championship. Abdul-Jabbar, who won the league MVP, averaged 31.7 points and 16.0 rebounds. Robertson, 32, settled into a complementary role for the first time in his career but still averaged 19.4 points and 8.2 assists. Dandridge put up 18.4 points and 8.0 rebounds.

This Seamless Sam Jones signature model nylon basketball was vintage signed by eleven members of the NBA champion 1970-71 Milwaukee Bucks including Lew Alcindor (scarce on a team ball), Robertson (signed “Big O”0), Embry, Boozer, McGlocklin, Winkler, Cunningham, Smith, McLemore, Costello (coach) and Webb. All signatures are in black marker, rating 7-8 out of 10. A vintage notation, “1970-71 Milwaukee Bucks World Chapions” also appears to be written in the same black marker. The ball itself is in about EX condition with an area of surface bubbling around the Sam Jones facsimile signature. A rare team signed basketball from one of the great teams of the era.

Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
