An amazing 10 x 13" photograph which captures a rather heated moment between legendary basketball players Julius Irving of the 76er's and Larry Bird of the Celtics. The image is matted and framed with a letter from the photojournalist Ted Gartland, detailing the altercation which took place after Irving knocked into Bird, successfully preventing his lay-up shot from going into the basket. The moment captured in this shot is just prior to the fists flying and the benches being cleared. The quality of the image is EX-MT with a sharp focus, good tonal qualities and pristine paper condition. It is a rarity to capture such a heated moment so perfectly on film.
