ALS signed "John Wooden, UCLA (Ret.)," one page, 8.5 x 11, no date. Handwritten letter about his induction into the Hall of Fame. In full: "It is always nice to be considered as one of the best in anything in which you are engaged and I was pleased and proud when I was selected to the National Basketball Hall of Fame as a player and equally pleased when I was selected as a coach to become the only person selected in more than one category. However, I am well aware of the fact that such honors are almost always influenced by being in the right place at the right time with the right people." In fine condition. A typically humble letter from the 'Wizard of Westwood.'
