Barnstormers Mini Print:
The Harlem Globetrotters

50.00

The Harlem Globetrotters are a classic American success story, but what’s often buried beneath the rags-to-riches narrative, the racial politics, and the banana cream pies, is that for nearly two decades the 'Trotters were a legitimately awesome basketball team. They defeated the defending-champs New York Renaissance in the 1940 World Pro Tournament and, later, to much fanfare, would defeat George Mikan’s reigning-champion Minneapolis Lakers in both 1948 and 1949. Stars like Runt Pullins and Marques Haynes were the best ball handlers of the era, and goofy big men Goose Tatum and Nat “Sweetwater” Clifton could pass and dribble like players half their size. 

Originally published in FreeDarko Presents: The Undisputed Guide to Pro Basketball History. Paper size: 13" x 22" Archival UltraChrome print on fine art paper. Open edition, signed by the artist. Please allow two to three weeks for delivery
