Dr. James Naismith is credited as having invented the game of "basket ball," as it was originally called. A quiet, unassuming man who never sought promotion or credit for his accomplishments, he had 14 days to create an indoor game that would provide an "athletic distraction" for a rowdy class at the School for Christian Workers in Springfield, Massachusetts. These three cuts have been signed once each in by Naismith, who signed "Jas Naismith." There is a 4-1/2" x 7" page signed in black fountain pen, with a tiny chip on the "N" in "Naismith," which is repaired with a small piece of tape on the back, signature grades an 8. There is a 3" x 4-1/2" sheet signed in pencil, signature grades a 7 to 8, and another 3" x 4-1/2" sheet signed in black fountain pen, signature grades a 5 to 6 and exhibits some bleeding. The sheets themselves are EXMT with some spotting. Accompanied by a LOA from James Spence Authentication.
