Autograph Note signed: "To James/In sportsmanship/Wilt/Chamberlain", 3½x2 card affixed to 5¼x4¼ sheet. Wilt Chamberlain (1936-1999) made his debut for the University of Kansas Jayhawks' varsity squad in a game against Northwestern on December 3, 1956. He set a school record when he scored 52 points in an 87-69 victory. Chamberlain then guided Kansas to the 1957 NCAA title game against North Carolina. Although North Carolina beat Kansas by one point in triple overtime, Chamberlain was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player. After playing for the Harlem Globetrotters in 1958-1959, Chamberlain joined the NBA's Philadelphia Warriors (1959-1962) and was Rookie of the Year and MVP. He moved with the franchise to San Francisco (1963-1964) before joining the Philadelphia 76ers (1964-1968). Chamberlain, who finished his pro career with the Los Angeles Lakers (1968-1973), was the first NBA player to score 4,000 points in a season. He set NBA single-game records for most points (100; March 2, 1962), most consecutive field goals (18) and most rebounds (55). A thirteen-time All-Star (1960-1969, 1971-1973), four-time MVP (1960, 1966-1968) and NBA Finals MVP (1972), Chamberlain was on two winning NBA championship teams (76ers, 1967; Lakers, 1972) and played on All NBA First Teams in 1960-1962 and 1964-1968. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1978. Unrelated newspaper clippings affixed at left, touching signature card, and on verso (light show through).
