By Oscar Robertson’s senior year it was obvious the 6' 5" point guard had the type of talent that came along once in a generation. In three varsity seasons with UC, “The Big O” single-handedly rewrote the Bearcats’ record book, led his team to a pair of Final Four appearances and put University of Cincinnati basketball on the map. The crowning achievement of Robertson’s collegiate career was being named Consensus First Team All-America as well as College Basketball Player of the Year for the third straight season. He was easily voted to the 1959-60 All-America First Team by The Sporting News.

Presented here is the official framed 8.5” by 11” sheet with the First and Second Teams as named by The Sporting News.  "Oscar Robertson, Cincinnati Player of the Year" is followed by fellow First Teamers Jerry West, Darrall Imhoff, Jerry Lucas and Tom Stith (all but the latter part of USA Basketball's 1960 Olympic Gold Medal team in Rome). It has been perfectly preserved under glass in a black frame and comes just as Oscar displayed it in his home for decades. 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).
