Imagine in 1958 you send your kid to a basketball day camp in Long Island, only to see a six foot three inch kid dunking on the side. That was the scenario at the St. Jude basketball camp when a young man named Lew Alcindor was suited up to play and compete with kids his own age, but nowhere near his peers on the court. Pictured in the back row wearing his camp shirt, this is quite possibly the earliest image of Alcindor in a basketball uniform that exists. Still present in it's original folder, the image itself slides out easily and can be submitted to PSA where it will absolutely garner a "Type 1" designation. Condition and quality are both outstanding and all things considered, this is one of the most important basketball photographs on the planet! Photo itself is 8x10 while the entire folder measures about 9.25x11 inches.
