Description

Through a grand total of 143 head-to-head matchups, the storied rivalry of Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain saw the Celtics go 86-57 in team wins, despite the individual numbers being lopsided in Chamberlain’s favor. When all was said and done, Russell came away with 11 NBA championship rings – and an undying respect for his 7-foot-1 nemesis. This photo is signed by Russell, who has added a rare inscription paying tribute to his post-playing counterpart. The 16x20” black-and-white print captures the pair in heated competition and is signed by Russell in silver-colored marker (“9” strength) and inscribed “#6.” Preceding his bold signature, Russell has inscribed “Wilt was the best I played against.” Accompanying is a basic cert card/sticker from JSA.
