A terrific addition to your sports collectibles shelf. My husband was a friend and golf partner of Bill's. He stayed at our house many times. When my husband's father died, he started a foundation in Dad's memory, The Benjamin Wiener Foundation.
Bill was kind enough to sign his books and meet w/people. Some of the people paid more to have dinner w/Bill and we couldn't believe how wonderful he was, because he usually didn't do those things as he was very private! The books are authentic and signed in front of me. By an N B A ICON.
