In 1961-62, Oscar Robertson of the Cincinnati Royals became the first basketball player to ever average a triple-double for an entire season. Somehow, he did not take home league MVP honors; instead the award went to Bill Russell of the Celtics. Two seasons later, The Big O was named Most Valuable Player for 1963-64 after finishing just shy of triple-double averages: 31.4 points (career high), an NBA-best 11.0 assists and 9.9 rebounds. In addition, he led the league in free-throw percentage at over 85%. For his efforts, Sport Magazine named Oscar "Top Performer in Pro Basketball 1964" and awarded him this 8" by 12" wood-based plaque (weighing just under 2.5 pounds). A brass nameplate spells out the honor with his name engraved. A raised coin-shaped emblem of a bare-chested male athlete adorns the bottom right. Oscar has autographed the bottom of the wood base in bold black marker. The plaque shows light wear and has a rear wall mount hanger from where it was displayed in Oscar's home for many years. Includes LOA from Oscar Robertson.

PLEASE NOTE: Oscar will donate a portion of his auction proceeds to the Jerome Lipper Multiple Myeloma Center and LeBow Institute for Myeloma Therapeutics at Dana Farber. This renowned cancer treatment center “provides comprehensive care to patients with multiple myeloma, including promising new therapies through clinical trials rooted in an approach that brings laboratory discoveries quickly to the clinical setting” (https://www.dana-farber.org/multiple-myeloma-program).
