Ben Simmons Autographed Authentic Spalding NBA Basketball with Engraved #1 Draft Pick Logo
The secret was out early in the week of the 2016 NBA Draft that Ben Simmons would go first overall to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers faithful breathed a huge sigh of relief when Simmons himself posted “Trust the process” on his Instagram account in the days leading up the draft. So on June 23, 2016, the journey from a 7-year-old kid shooting baskets in Australia to becoming the first pick in the NBA Draft was completed for Simmons. The Sixers made him their first No. 1 pick since choosing Georgetown guard and 2016 Naismith Hall of Fame inductee Allen Iverson with the top selection 20 years previous. Simmons joined Shaquille O’Neal as the only LSU players to be drafted first overall. The immensely talented forward with the great handle joins a Sixers team young and hungry for a return to greatness. Upper Deck Authenticated introduces the first autographed authentic basketball to be signed by Simmons as a professional athlete. Simmons has signed this authentic Spalding basketball with a unique No. 1 Overall Pick logo emblazoned on the ball in silver paint pen. His signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated’s Five Step Process.
