Spud Webb was the shortest person to compete in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest, winning the event in 1986. He was drafted in the 4th round of the 1985 NBA Draft by the Detroit Pistons. His first six seasons were played with the Atlanta Hawks, but he had his best years statistically with the Sacramento Kings, where he played as a starter from 1992-1995. He then split a season between the Atlanta Hawks and the Minnesota Timberwolves before finishing his career after one season with the Orlando Magic and retiring from professional basketball in 1998. Webb played 814 games in his NBA career, averaging 9.9 points per game, and registering 8072 points and 4342 assists in twelve seasons. Since the 5-7 Webb made his NBA debut, only two players have been shorter than he was: Earl Boykins and Muggsy Bogues.
Here are Webb's Size 7 1/2 Spot Bilt shoes, game-worn but still in marvelous condition, largely as-issued and problem-free. On the toe of each shoe he has signed "To Big Bill, Spud Webb" and added his uniform No. 4; one shoe is signed in black marker, the other in ballpoint.
Comes with a Letter of Authenticity from renowned shoe collector, Bill Ficke.
