Jerry West L.A. Lakers original photo Signed AUTO circa 1960 with Note PSA/DNA

Jerry West was on the fast track to stardom from the day he touched a basketball. Throughout the NBA’s storied history, it would be hard to find a better pure shooter. At West Virginia, West led the Mountaineers to the NCAA Finals and captured the Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player award in 1959. In a superlative senior season, West was a unanimous First Team All-America and led West Virginia to its third consecutive conference championship. When the game was on the line, West’s Los Angeles Laker teammates always found a way to get the ball to “Mr. Clutch.” His cool, calm, and collected personality and his leadership on the court was a coach’s dream. When he retired, West’s name was on nearly every page of the record books. He scored 25,192 points (third), averaged 27.0 points per game (fourth), made 7,160 free throws (second), and dished out 6,238 assists (fifth). West was equally adept on the defensive end, named to the NBA All-Defensive First Team four times.

Offered is a signed photo signed circa 1960-61 that has been personalized in blue ink.  On that back of the photo is a signed note that he wrote, “Sorry about the delay in answering, but due to the policy of the team it is impossible to get a Lakers jersey.  Sincerely, Jerry West.”

What a cool piece? Who thought about getting a jersey back in those days?

PSA/DNA encapsulated.
