In between celebrated tenures at the University of Kansas and with the ever-mighty Boston Celtics, former guard Jo Jo White sparked United States amateur rosters to convincing triumphs abroad. The offered (3) items were presented to White for his international hoops efforts. Includes: Universiade 1967 Tokyo Medal a 2-9/16"-diameter gilded medallion with three faces in relief on the front and silhouette event logos carved on the reverse. The original red-white-and-black ribbon hanger accompanies; 1967 Pan American Games Medal a 2"-diameter gilded medal with event logos in relief on the front, a buffalo image on the reverse and the original green-hued ribbon hanger. Held in Winnipeg, Canada that year, the event was dominated by the U.S., which won 128 gold medals; 1969 College All-America Team Scroll housed in a 22-1/8 x 18-1/8" frame, this "Helms Athletic Foundation" parchment scroll lists the 36 1969 College Basketball All-American honorees (which includes the likes of White, Alcindor and Maravich) and is further accented by a gold-colored seal and the signature of foundation chairman Paul Helms ("7-8"). Each item is well preserved and carries wondrous display potential.
