This is an official NBA authentic full size basketball that was personally autographed by Shaquille O’Neal in black sharpie. This is a stock photo and the autograph that you may receive could vary from the picture listed. He was drafted with the first overall pick in 1992, after earning All American honors twice at LSU, by the Orlando Magic whom he led the 1995 NBA Finals. He would then play the next 8 seasons with the Lakers winning 3 NBA championships and was selected as the Finals MVP in each. He then joined the Heat and won his fourth championship before short stints in Phoenix, Cleveland and Boston. Perhaps the most charismatic super star to ever play in the NBA and one of the greatest centers of all-time. This item includes a certificate of authenticity from Professional Sports Authentication (PSA/DNA) and Denver Autographs.
