Rick Barry’s Personally Owned 1972 ABA All-Star Plaque Award

The American Basketball Association (ABA) was a professional basketball league that operated from the 1967-68 season until it ceased to exist with the ABA-NBA merger in 1976. The ABA presented a variety of annual awards and honors to recognize its players and executives. Named one of the 50 Greatest Players in history by the NBA in 1996, Rick Barry ranks among the most prolific scorers and all-around players in basketball history and is the only one to lead the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), ABA, and NBA in points per game in a season. He ranks as the all-time ABA scoring leader in regular season (30.5 points per game) and postseason (33.5) play, while his 36.3 points per game are the most in the NBA Finals history.
