Wilt Chamberlain/John Havliceik Signed SI Lithograph
Out of stock
Dramatic full-color image depicting action from the 1969 NBA Championship series, pitting Chamberlain of the Lakers against nemesis John Havlicek of the Celtics. One of twelve “Living Legends” lithos commissioned by Sports Illustrated and made available on a subscription basis in the mid-1970’s. All the subjects are still legends, but few are still living.
This is a very fine, high-quality print featuring the work of noted artist Bob Peake – collectable in his own right. Wilt was notoriously difficult during this project and the majority of the signatures he offered up were less than stellar. Many of the 1000 prints produced were destroyed by Sports Illustrated due to lack of clarity and general non-conformity (adjectives which could just as easily be applied to Wilt). As such, there are few really nice examples around. Measures 18 x 22 inches. This is number 872 in the limited edition of 1000.
