This is stunning tribute to two of the greatest names in NBA history, a marvelous piece of Celtics lore and legend neatly encapsulated in this massive 18 1/2-by-27-inch framed and matted display that links a poignant 13-by-11-inch sepia toned photograph of the two hugging with a 5-by-4-inch section of the famed Boston Garden parquet floor, with bold black Sharpie autographs added to the section and Russell adding an inscription of his uniform No. 6. Affixed to the parquet section is a hologram noting "The Historic Boston Garden Parquet," which was the group that oversaw the portioning of the famed floor for various memorabilia undertakings. The sepia-toned photograph, the floor section and a 7-by-2-inch gold nameplate ("Red Auerbach & Bill Russell, All-Time Winning-est Coach & Player, Signed Piece of the Boston Garden Parquet Floor") are handsome matted in Celtics green and off-white, with intricate additional graphic elements and the parquet floor piece mounted in a shadow-box effect. Entire piece is handsome protected in an attractive wood frame that, like the other elements in the piece, appears to be in essentially as-issued and problem-free condition.
