For five years, Julius Erving practiced his amazing high-flying, up-tempo, above-the-rim game in front of the mostly-empty arenas of the ABA. Then, the merger came, and in 1976-77, the revolution reached the NBA! Years before Magic, Bird and Jordan arrived on the scene, "Dr. J" helped usher in the modern era with his highlight-film moves, Madison Avenue style, and magical performances in the basketball meccas of Madison Square Garden, Boston Garden, and Philadelphia's Spectrum. From the Doctor's second season in the NBA comes "Classic Blue", a rare look at Dr. J in his huge-'fro early NBA days! Taken at the Boston Garden in a typical grudge match against the Celtics, this classic image captures the grace, power and skill of Erving at the height of his greatness, as he takes on another legend (John Havlicek) for a little one-on-one in the paint. This unique print pictures Julius in the rare royal-blue road uniform, worn only during the 1977-78 season. Both a historic moment, and a breathtaking work of photographic art, this print will bring back memories of those glorious transition years of the late-1970s, when the ABA flash melded with the NBA's professionalism to create the modern game we love today. More than just a poster, this is a professional-quality 20" x 24" photographic enlargement from the original source, bringing the moment alive with the sharp colors and crispness of a professional gallery-quality reproduction. Officially licensed by the NBA and Erving himself, complete with Hardwood Classics logo and NBA Properties hologram for authenticity! Perfect for the wall of any fan, and a must for your collection.
