About Elgin Baylor Autographed Basketballs
The Minneapolis Lakers were on the verge of folding as a franchise when they drafted a player named Elgin Baylor with the top pick in the 1958 draft. Baylor went on to have an illustrious career with the Lakers and helped the franchise remain a cornerstone of the NBA. After his 14-year career came to an end, the Lakers retired his No. 22 jersey to commemorate his success with the team.
A smooth-shooting forward, Baylor’s career averages of 27.4 points per game and 13.5 rebounds per game make him one of the best players to ever play the sport. His accolades also speak for themselves; Baylor was a Rookie of The Year, an 11 time All-Star and a member of the All-NBA First Team 10 times in his career. In mid-November of the 1960-1961 season, Baylor erupted for what still stands as one of the best individual game performances in NBA history when he scored a then-record 71 points against the New York Knicks while also grabbing 25 rebounds.
