Bob Cousy – Basketball “Houdini.”

Lot 433. Bob Cousy – Basketball “Houdini.” That’s the way an exhibit panel formerly used in the MCI Center’s National Sports Gallery characterizes the Boston Celtics’ Hall of Fame guard. Cousy won six NBA championships with the Celtics and earned league MVP honors in 1957. The 5.5” x 18.5” metal panel, which has a 9” x 8.25” b&w action photo of Cousy, provides this text: “‘HOUDINI OF HARDWOOD’ - Bob Cousy played his first game in 1950 as a Boston Celtic. He quickly earned his nickname and a reputation for his dribbling and passing skills, as basketball’s ‘first great wizard of ball handling.’ He pleased fans with behind-the-back passes and reverse dribbles, and led the NBA in assists eight consecutive seasons. Named to the All-NBA team 10 seasons in a row, he later coached college and professional ball.” Nm+, the panel is from the estate of Frank Ceresi, the Sports Gallery curator and executive director until it closed in 2001. Carol McMains, Ceresi’s business partner, has provided a letter of authenticity for the panel. Winning Bid $30.
