Warriors-Lakers 1961 Basketball Scorecard with vintage signatures of Hall of Famers Wilt Chamberlain and Elgin Baylor whose single game scoring record would be broken by Wilt the Stilt in their next meeting just six days later – exactly three months later, Chamberlain scored 100 points in a game against the Knicks
Basketball Scorecard Signed: “Wilt Chamberlain,” “Elgin Baylor,” LA Coach “Fred Schaus,” “Ed Conlin,” “Joe Ruklick,” “Tom Hawkins,” and “Tom Meschery” each with excellent contrast and “Howard Jolliff” (on his photograph), all in pencil on the cover, 4p, 8.5” x 11”, front & verso. Chamberlain is pictured in action against the Lakers on page three of the scorecard which was filled out by a fan. Fine condition.

On December 2, 1961, the 16-7 Los Angeles Lakers defeated the 12-9 Philadelphia Warriors 129-119 at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. The Warriors’ Chamberlain (37 points) led both teams in scoring. Warriors Conlin scored 9 points, Meschery 5, and Ruklick 0. Los Angeles Lakers’ Baylor scored 20 points and Jolliff 6. Hawkins didn’t play.

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. On November 15, 1960, Elgin Baylor had scored a then-record 71 points against the Knicks, a record broken by Wilt Chamberlain on December 8, 1961, with 78 points in triple overtime, just six days after signing this scorecard, in the Warriors next game against the Lakers.

The Boston Celtics defeated the Philadelphia Warriors in the 1962 NBA Eastern Division Finals and the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1962 NBA Finals. Each series went seven games.
