Chamberlain and Baylor battle for scoring records in 1961

Vintage souvenir scorecard for the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Philadelphia Warriors basketball game on December 2, 1961, 8.5 x 11, two pages, signed on the front cover in pencil by Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baker, Fred Schaus, Ed Conlin, Joe Ruklick, Tom Hawkins, Tom Meschery, and Howard Jolliff. The inside was scored in pencil by a spectator, with Chamberlain tallying 37 points. In fine condition, with light edge toning. At the time, Baylor held the single-game scoring record, which Chamberlain broke just six days after this game took place. Exactly three months later, on March 2, 1962, Wilt Chamberlain set an NBA record by scoring 100 points in a game as Philadelphia beat the New York Knicks 169-147. Pre-certified Steve Grad/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
