Vintage 1951 action photograph of the Harlem Globetrotters and from the teams official photographer, taken on one of their world tours over seas. The image is a cool look at how the Globetrotters played above the rim in an era of set shots and dunking was illegal. It shows a Globetrotters player attacking the rim as he dominated the New York Celtics. The photo was taken in a packed arena that almost appears to be outdoors! From the estate of a team official (likely Abe Saperstein), this is being offered here for the first time ever.
