Amazing photo of Los Angeles Lakers sensation Jerry West, used for his 1961 Fleer Basketball card. Photo measures 8x10" and is a "posed action" shot of West in a defensive posture, left hand held high and right hand extended. His signature in black fine point marker extends up his right thigh and onto his shorts, a necessity due to the limited space caused by the dark background. Back is blank except for the stamp identifying the subject. This early-20s shot is from right around West's 1960-61 rookie season, in which he averaged 17.6 points per game with 4.2 assists per game, though that season's Rookie of the Year honors went to no less than fellow Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson. Encapsulated by PSA and dual-graded as Type I photo, and AUTO 10.
