Presented here is the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame plaque awarded to Connie Hawkins at his induction ceremony on May 11, 1992. The Brooklyn native, who groomed his game at Rucker Park as a teenager, was forced to begin his professional career early in the ABL after being unfairly blackballed by the NCAA and NBA over a point-shaving scandal that he was never proven to have taken part in. After a five-year run with the Harlem Globetrotters, the 6’ 8” forward joined the Pittsburgh Pipers and promptly led them to the 1968 ABA Championship in his first season, also earning league MVP honors. “The Hawk” eventually found his way to the NBA, starring for the Phoenix Suns and making four straight All-Star teams (1970-73).

The beautifully designed Hall of Fame induction plaque includes a silver-and-black, head-and-shoulders portraiture of Connie smiling that's positioned above raised silver lettering that reads,  "Connie Hawkins Elected as a PLAYER Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame May 11, 1992.” The specially presented plaque sits on a black felt background inside a wooden frame that measures 12" wide by 15.5" high. Includes LOA from Connie Hawkins' longtime girlfriend.
