Goldin Offers Basketballs from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s Final Regular Season & Postseason Games

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is known around the world for many reasons. The “Tower from Power” is a six-time NBA champion, a Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame inductee and a tireless social justice champion. Now, fans have a chance to own incredible pieces of Kareem’s legacy as game-used balls from some of the most momentous occasions from his time in the NBA have hit the auction block at Goldin.

Presented exclusively by Goldin as part of the company’s February Sports Elite Auction is the final regular season game ball of Kareem’s incredible and record-breaking career, used to score the center’s final points.
Additionally available is the game ball used in Kareem’s final NBA game. The game, an NBA Finals Game 4 matchup against the “Bad Boy” Detroit Pistons at Great Western Forum, ended 105-97 in favor of Detroit and giving them their first-ever championship win, ending Los Angeles’ season and Kareem’s incredible, record-breaking career.
Recognized as one of the greatest basketball players of all time, Kareem was the NBA’s all-time leading points scorer for almost four decades. He ended his 20-season career with 38,387 regular season points—a record which stood until LeBron James surpassed his historic mark on February 7, 2023.
“Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is one of the greatest players and one of the finest men of all time,” said Goldin Founder and Executive Chairman Ken Goldin. “His basketball legacy is matched only by his commitment to social justice and we’re proud at Goldin to have worked closely with Kareem over the years. Though the succession is complete and LeBron James is the new NBA scoring king, the world will forever remember Kareem’s time on the throne. If you’re a fan of basketball or history you won’t want to miss this.”
These marquee items will appear alongside other pieces of legendary and sought-after collectibles as part of Goldin’s February Sports Elite auction. Both items come with a personally hand-signed letter of authenticity directly from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The items are available for bidding now through March 1. Goldin is always actively accepting consignments for its Elite auctions and future auctions. To inquire about consigning items, email
