1956-57 Extremely early photograph of high school superstar Jerry Lucas from Middletown high school in Ohio. Pictured with his coaches in full uniform, this is the only image of Lucas from before college that we have ever seen and it captures him during his junior year! Encapsulated by PSA as a Type 1, this photo is absolutely beautiful and would grade perfect but for a little spot of editorial ink spilled on the bottom border. A magnificent piece of basketball history that is being offered here for the first time ever!
