Ben Simmons Draft Day Framed 16x20 Photo with Autographed Clear Acetate Sheet
SHIPPING AFTER JULY 18TH, 2016
The professional basketball draft began in 1947 with the little-publicized selection of Clifton McNeeley out of UTEP by the Basketball Association of America’s Pittsburgh Ironmen. The NBA came into play with the merger of the BAA and the NBL and the debut of the NBA Draft in 1950. Some of the greatest names in basketball history have been selected first overall, including Elgin Baylor, Oscar Robertson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaquille O’Neal, Allen Iverson and LeBron James. Following a stellar season at LSU, Ben Simmons put his name on that list when the Philadelphia 76ers selected him first overall on June 23, 2016. That moment is captured here in this draft day image. Simmons is an exceptional passer by any standards, but considering his 6-foot-10 frame, it makes his unselfish play that much tougher to defend. Of college basketball’s freshmen forwards and centers since 2000, he had the highest assist average (4.8) of anyone. The sky’s the limit for the Australian native. Upper Deck Authenticated his produced this unique and timely piece that includes an image from the 2016 NBA Draft with a signed clear acetate sheet on top of the image. This Draft Day 16” x 20” piece comes framed and houses the image and a clear acetate sheet that Simmons has signed in paint pen. His signature is deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated’s Five Step Process.
