Eye popping full color poster for the March 11, 1959 Harlem Globetrotters exhibition in Toledo, Ohio, featuring "The Sensational Wilt "The Stilt" Chamberlain. Leaving college after his junior year, Wilt Chamberlain was barred from playing in the NBA until his class graduated. So for the 1958-59 season he signed to play with the Harlem Globetrotters for a reported $50,000 for the season, an incredible amount of money at that time. This is one of the rare mementos from the one season traveling with the Trotters. Awesome color artwork for the poster was done by famous sports cartoonist Willard Mullin, whose printed signature appears at the bottom. 14 x 22 inch poster framed and matted to a size of 20 3/4 x 28 3/4 inches. A literal feast for the eyes.
