1979 Two-part composite photograph of Larry Bird from Indiana State and Magic Johnson from Michigan State as the two superstars emerged as the future of basketball. Each is a clear and bold dark-room image off the original negative despite being a composite photograph and this is one of the bet images of the pair that we have ever seen. Issued ten years later as part of a retrospective and stamped on the back by NBC television, this grades a perfect 10/10!
