1969 Incredible action photograph of Bill Russell from the Boston Celtics as he floats a sky-hook over Wilt Chamberlain of the Lakers. This was a key moment in game number six of the NBA Finals that helped the Celtics even the series and force a seventh game (which they would win). From the Bettman archive and in great shape, this appears to be a slightly later restrike, likely from the late 1970's, that might fit within our range for a Vintage 1 example, but that PSA would likely call a Type 2 (c. 1970's-1980's) so we are calling it a Vintage 2.
