This is a stunning 1967 original Harlem Globetrotters cardboard poster advertisement for a game in their 41st season at the New Hampshire Armory in Nashua, NH. There is water damage on the bottom left-hand side, but overall, it's an excellent piece of sports/entertainment history. Measures 14.20" wide by 22" tall. Small folds on corners. Colors still very vibrant.
About: The Harlem Globetrotters are an exhibition basketball team, founded in 1920 on the South Side of Chicago where the original players were raised. Historically, they've combined athleticism, theater and comedy in their style of play. The Globetrotters began in 1920 as the Savoy Big Five and by 1928, were called the "Globe Trotters". The next year, their manager selected Harlem, NY as their home city, since Harlem was considered the center of African-American culture. Interestingly, the Globetrotters did not play in Harlem until 1968, four decades after the team's formation.
