Massive 9’ 10” x 14’ 9” canvas flag featuring the Olympic logo of five interlocking rings in blue, yellow, black, green and red. The “Unione Militare Roma” was manufactured in Rome, host city of the 1960 Olympics. The manufacturer’s tag appears on the edge along with “O.I.C.” and the dimensions “300 x 450” stamped in black. This flag originates from the collection of Jerry Lucas, he obtained it from the Athletes Village during the 1960 Olympics where he and the U.S. men’s basketball team won gold. This was the main flag and it is in EX condition with some minor staining. 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.
