1940-41 Action photograph of the Harlem Globetrotters (billed as the "Original" Globetrotters) from a period where they were a real team and not a side-show, battling against the Detroit Eagles in the World Championship! The Globetrotters won in 1940 but it would be the Eagles here that would win the game and the championship! A RARE photo of the two World Champions battling against each other.
