The Spalding NBA Official leather basketball is signed by eight members of the 1980's “Showtime” Lakers, including Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Jerry West (GM), Michael Cooper, Byron Scott, Kurt Rambis, A.C. Green and James Worthy.

The most important component of Showtime was the Lakers' fast break. In a typical sequence, rebounders such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kurt Rambis, and A. C. Green would quickly release an outlet pass to Johnson, who would race down the court and distribute the ball to players such as James Worthy, Byron Scott, and Michael Cooper for a finishing layup or slam dunk. Oftentimes, Johnson would rebound the ball and drive the ball up court himself on a fast break. He would sometimes deliver the ball to teammates with a no-look pass. And when none of that worked, they had the luxury to slip into a half court offense anchored by Kareem. 

The ball is accompanied by its original Upper Deck Authenticated certificate of authenticity, numbered “500/500”. The ball presents in Near Mint to Mint condition.

1980s “Showtime” Los Angeles Lakers Signed Limited Edition Upper Deck Basketball with Magic, Kareem, Worthy, Cooper, Scott, Green, Rambis and Jerry West (LE 500/500)
