About as important a Game-Used basketball as exists in the hobby! From George Mikan’s own collection (and THE ONLY ABA basketball he had in his possession) and signed by Big George himself! Mikan was the NBA’s very first mega-star and the ABA’s first commissioner. Perhaps the most enduring and iconic image from the ABA is the ball… The red, white and blue ball was a focal point of criticism and ridicule, particularly by the NBA. Sometimes, change comes hard. But that ball was a great success for the ABA, and years later, it still exists. Today, the red, white and blue ball is used in a three-point shooting contest held each year at the NBA All-Star Weekend. In that contest, when the red, white and blue ball goes through the hoop, it is worth more points than the other balls. I couldn’t have given it a greater compliment myself.
