Jerry Lucas wasn't particularly tall or bruising, nor was he a great leaper, but his name can be found at the top of any list of great rebounding forwards in NBA history. The 6' 8" Lucas hauled down 12,942 rebounds for an average of 15.6 per game, the fourth-best career mark in NBA history. Playing for three teams in his 11-year career-the Cincinnati Royals, the San Francisco Warriors, and the New York Knicks, Lucas tallied 14,053 points (17.0 ppg) and finished with a lofty .499 career field-goal percentage. He was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1980 and named a Top 50 All-Time player in 1996. This size 14, 14k gold ring weighs 43 grams. It was presented to Jerry Lucas in 1996 when he was selected as one of fifty players for the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. The top panel of the ring reads “NBA GREATEST PLAYERS” surrounding a silver basketball with “50” in relief. The left panel reads “LUCAS” above the NBA 50th Anniversary logo and the player number “32”. The right panel reads “1946” and “1996” with the official NBA logo in the center. The inside of the ring is stamped “LGB 14K”. The ring is in NRMT condition and comes in the original wooden presentation box. 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.
