***Marked Down from $375*** Signed in 1999 at the August 1999 Grand Opening of a new Sports Chalet location in Porter Ranch (now closed).
This KB #8 ball represents the 1st season of Phil Jackson's championship reign with the Los Angeles Lakers (1999-2000) NBA Finals 4-2 over the Indiana Pacers.
As a Freshman in HS at the time , before the ink dried, I instantly blemished the top mark of the signature with my thumb when I walked out the store with my dad, no less I have cared for this ball for nearly twenty years.
I made some phone calls to sports collector and did some internet sleuthing and "the blemish" can be touched up with a magic eraser by hand or by an antique or memorabilia cleaner.
I wanted to leave it as is. And that's why I am offering it for the specific price-point.
Most balls are priced between $700 to $1100 dollars. But this is an indoor/outdoor ball not an official game-ball.
I'm confident in my honesty and reputation and I standby the authenticity of this balls origin and efficacy. Sending the ball for JSA, BSA or ACE certification can be discussed.
Deal can be made at any reputable Sports Collectors shop within 15 miles of North Hollywood.
