In an April 6, 1977 contest vs. Houston John Havlicek took a pass from JoJo White and scored on a layup during the second period to break the 25,000 point barrier for his NBA career. Havlicek became only the fourth player in league history to reach that milestone joining him with Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson and Jerry West. This was the ball used by John Havlicek on April 6, 1977 to score his 25,000th point. The official Wilson NBA ball shows good use, along with elaborate gold-and-black lettering added to provide the details of the historic moment. One panel has Havlicek’s name, 25,000 Points; a second panel has imprinting of “vs. Houston (Rockets) at Boston Garden and the date. The distinctive Havlicek autograph appears in bold, black Sharpie on the first panel alongside “Career Points” imprinting. This astounding artifact is a monument to the brilliance and consistency of one of the greatest players to ever hit the hardwood.
Includes a LOA from John Havlicek.
