SKU# 85670 The 3-point field goal came to the NBA game in 1979, and since then, only six players have recorded a season in which they have shot at least 50 percent from the field, 40 percent from 3-point range and 90 percent from the free throw line. The exclusive club is called the 50-40-90 club, and Mark Price became the second player in league history to join when he did so during the 1988-89 season. He shot 53 percent from the field, 44 percent from long distance and 90 percent from the charity stripe in his first season as an NBA All-Star. He earned All-NBA Third Team honors, finishing as the third-best point guard in the league behind Magic Johnson and John Stockton. Celtics great Larry Bird was the first 50-40-90 member as he did it in back-to-back seasons leading up to Price’s accomplishment. After Price, other members to join the club are Reggie Miller, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Durant. In addition to his shooting exploits, Price also finished eighth in assists per game (8.4) that magical season. Price has signed and inscribed “50-40-90 Club '89” on this limited edition (50) Spalding replica indoor/outdoor basketball in black paint pen. His signature and inscription are deemed authentic by virtue of Upper Deck Authenticated’s Five Step Process.
