IN BRIEF

This offering represents the original photograph, the foundational artwork, used to create Mikan’s iconic 1948 Bowman Rookie card, “the most recognizable image on the planet of this early hardcourt Hall of Famer”. The photo is also signed by George Mikan. With the boom in sports cards, many collectors view the photographs behind the cards as a value play poised to play catch up.

THE ATHLETE

Also known as “Mr. Basketball”, George Mikan is seen as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. Mikan was a 3x NBA Scoring Champ, 4x NBA All-Star, 6x All-NBA First Team, 7x NBA/NBL/BAA Champ as well as MVP of the NBL in 1948. After his playing career, Mikan became one of the founders of the ABA and served as commissioner of the league and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1959. Mikan was named to the 25th and 35th NBA Anniversary Teams and was elected one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history in 1996.
