Description
Sharpshooter Jack Twyman was more than just a basketball superstar and HOF'er - he was a great person as well as evidenced by his continual efforts to support the rehabilitation of teammate Maurice Stokes after Stokes was paralyzed in 1958. Twyman essentially took over the responsibility of the raising of hundreds of thousands of dollars for Stokes' medical bills and rehab. He's shown here on a rare (in PSA 9) '61 Fleer card which just sings with freshness and quality. It's one of only 6 copies to grade Mint 9 by PSA, with only 1 copy graded higher.
