From 1899-1924 Ed Wachter was perhaps the greatest Basketball Player in the World. After a long career that included numerous Championships and Scoring Titles, he turned his attention to coaching. The offered beautiful image shows Wachter in his new role as head coach at Harvard University posing with a player. Wachter is looking like he could jump in and still play! He would successfully coach for another 20 years and would be one of the first men inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. Vintage images of early Basketball Hall of Famers are among the rarest of all sports photographs to obtain and this is a beautiful example. Dated December 1927 and stamped from Acme Newspictures it also carries a full paper caption on the reverse. Condition is very fine for the age with just some very minor edge chipping mentioned for accuracy.
Designation: Vintage 1
Overall Grade: 9/10
