Spring Premier Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
One hundred and seven NBA championship rings. More than four hundred NBA All-Star Game selections. Nearly one million points scored. So boasts the collective resume of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. NBA Commissioner David Stern announced the 50 Greatest Players at a press luncheon on Oct. 29, 1996, in New York City. All those chosen were gathered together for a celebration held in conjunction with the 1997 NBA All-Star Game held in Cleveland’s Gund Arena. Among the gifts received by the honorees were these custom etched crystal plates presented by Gordon & Lulie Gund. This plate, presented to Bob Cousy, features his name etched above a detailed All-Star Game logo, as well as the inscription,
“Congratulations to The 50 Greatest Players of All Time”. The rim of the plate is banded in gold, and it rests in a custom mahogany stand, which Cousy has signed. An elegant tribute to a member of an elite class of NBA legends.
LOA from Bob Cousy.
