1959 Harlem Globetrotters Poster with Wilt Chamberlain

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $829.50

Scarce one-sheet poster heralding the arrival of Abe Saperstein's fabulous Harlem Globetrotters, featuring Wilt "The Stilt" Chamberlain, at the Hippodrome in Waterloo, Iowa, on Tuesday, January 6, 1959. The poster, which advertises the Globetrotters as "Basketball's No. 1 Show," also notes that the Texas Cow Girls, a female version of the Globetrotters, would also appear on the card. Harlem Globetrotter posters featuring Chamberlain are rare because 1959 marked the only year he toured with the team full-time. This is one of only a few examples we have ever seen. This is a magnificent and ideal Harlem Globetrotters poster in all respects and perfect for display! The poster (26.5 x 39.5 inches) is in Nr-Mt condition and has been matted to total dimensions of 35 x 48 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $829.50
