By virtue of the more than 150 athletic scholarships he was offered, Jerry Lucas had a wide selection from which to choose. Said Lucas at the time, "I wanted to go to school in Ohio, and Ohio State was the only school that talked about academics first." He was named Player of the Year in both 1961 and 1962 and Sports Illustrated named him "Sportman of the Year" for 1961. The Buckeyes went 78-6 over three years led by Lucas. His overall amateur record of two Ohio high school championships, then three NCAA Finals with one championship was a total amateur record that perhaps has no match in basketball history. Lucas's number “11” became the second uniform number to be retired by Ohio State University. He is the only player to be Big Ten MVP three times. Inside the rear collar is the “Rawlings” manufacturer’s tag with size “46”. Inside is a white label with number 34 crossed out and also number 35 written in black. Across the back is “OHIO STATE” done in white on black tackle twill. On the left sleeve is the team disc patch with “The Ohio State University Buckeyes” embroidered in white chain stitch. The shooting shirt is properly tagged, was presented to us as worn and in our opinion, shows wear. Accompanied by a LOA from Jerry Lucas.

This lot will come with a hand signed letter from Jerry Lucas as well as a Naismith Memorabilia Basketball Hall of Fame letter of authenticity.

Lots 1–17 presented in this auction catalog are consigned to us directly from NBA Hall of Famer and Top 50 great Jerry Lucas. Jerry Lucas is one of the greatest basketball players in the history of the game. Lucas is one of only three players in history to win championships at every level (high school, college, NBA, Olympics); was named one of the Top Fifty players in NBA history; and named one of the Top 15 All-Time March Madness Players. During his career Lucas was a 7-time All-Pro, was the NBA All-Star Game MVP and is the only forward in league history to pull down 40 rebounds in a game. In 1973, he was a member of the New York Knicks World Championship team. He retired from the game with time remaining on his contract to pursue his passion of education and was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1979. We are honored to present this collection at our 2013 Hall of Fame Induction Auction.
