Lot 1719: 1971 Autographed ABA Kentucky/Utah Championship Program Original Art
The ball was red, white and blue but the ABA was more colorful than that, sporting blooming Afros, acrobatic dunk artists and the kind of showmanship missing from the NBA. Remember Marvin "The Human Tire Iron" Barnes? Revel in the names and the memories with this original artwork (EX+) of the 1971 ABA Championship game signed by 25 ABA greats including Barnes, Dr. J, George "Ice Man" Gervin, Moses Malone, Artis Gilmore, James Silas, Rick Darnell, Jumbo Jim Eakins, etc. All autographed with care on the 16 x 20" white border around the 8 1/2 x 11" psychedelic work at the 2005 NBA All-Star Game weekend. Just as he did on the court, Dr. J's autograph steals the show.
