My Forever Treasures is pleased to offer our first combination 3 iconic sports hero treasures. Tennis great Rod Laver, basketball’s Lew Alcindor and baseball’s Mickey and Yogi.
We start with an autographed photo of Rod Laver. Tennis’s first king of the courts. Rod is an Australian tennis player, widely regarded as the greatest in the history of the sport. He won 11 singles grand slams. He won a record 200 tournaments. Held the #1 world ranking from 1964-1970. The only male or female tennis player to win two grand slams in single calendar years. Laver was the first to exceed more than $1 million on tour. He won 11 major titles in just 16 tries. Rod Laver’s 2 French Opens, 4 Wimbledon Championships, 2 U.S. National Titles and 3 Australian Titles set the bar for Federer and all who follow him.
Today Kareem Abdul Jabbar aka Lew Alcindor still holds the N.B.A.’s lifetime scoring record. Jordan and the others including Lebron James might never catch his incredible 38,387 points. In his second year, this 1970-71 Alcindor Milwaukee Bucks basketball card has him scoring 31 points a game with 16 rebounds as well.He changed his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar the following year. Averaging 24.6 points a game with 11.2 rebounds in his 20 year career. A 19 time All Star and 6 time World Champion with 6 M.V.P. Awards, Kareem is considered one of the greatest professional basketball players of all time.
