Fall Premier Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Hall of Famer and six-time NBA All-Star Adrian Dantley wore these handsome Size 14 Adidas shoes during an NBA career that lasted 15 seasons and saw Dantley finish his career with an average of 24.3 points per game, shooting an astounding .540 from the floor — 16th in NBA history — and .818 from the free throw line. He led the league in free throws six times and ranks sixth all-time in that category. He shares the record with Wilt Chamberlain for most free throws made in a regular-season NBA game with 28.
These Adidas shoes are game-worn but still in marvelous condition, largely as-issued and problem-free. On the outside heel of each shoe Dantley has signed in black Sharpie; one shoe (left) is more faded because it was on display in Ficke's store for several years. The other maintained its whiteness due to being stored and better preserved inside a box.
Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from renowned shoe collector, Bill Ficke.
