Looking at this piece of history makes me feel like the pawn shop owner on Hardcore Pawn when someone brings in a piece of Detroit history. The document you are looking at is the hand-filled NBA stat sheet from the famous Double OT game between the Celtics and Bulls. that most basketball fans assumed the Bulls won, because they only remember the fact that MJ lit up Bird and the Celtics for 63 points. Sorry, Boston won 135-131 behind 36 points and 8 assists from Bird and 27 and 15 boards from McHale.

Back to the piece of memorabilia that I would gladly pay a $#it load for, I love how they wrote in the remarks section that MJ’s 63 was an All-time playoff high and that he was a write-in for the block shots section with a team high 2. I’m also sure the guy that filled out this sheet would probably love the digital technology available now, but you just can’t beat the authenticity and feel of something tangible that can be touched, framed, passed from hand-to-hand and held up in the glorious rays of the sun while angels sing in the background¬†decades later.
