This 16'' x 20'' photograph has been personally hand-signed by Elvin Hayes with the inscription ''When I Think Back To January 20th, 1968 And The Game Of The Century In The Houston Astrodome, I Can Picture The 52,693 Fans. It Was The First Nationally Televised College Basketball Game We Had Lost To UCLA Bruins The Year Before In The Semi-Finals And Our Goal As A Team Was To Defeat UCLA In That Game. The Were Coming In Ranked #1 With The #1 Player And Star In College Basketball, Lew Alcindor. We Went #2 With At That Time An All American Basketball Player By The Name Of Elvin Hayes And I Also Had A Personal Goal Going Into That Game To Remind Us Shining Lew Alcindor Star That Had Been Shining So Brightly In High School And Now In College My Goal Was To Remove His Star And Replace It With Mine. As You Can See In The Picture I Am Rising Above The Rim, And All Are Gazing Into The Heavens To Look At The New Born Star Minutes Left In The Game. This Was The Scenario That When I Was A Young Kid In My Back Yard I Had Played Over And Over Again, Elvin Hayes Walked To The Line With The Game Tied With Only Seconds To Go He Makes The Two Free Throws That Wins The Game And The Crowd Goes Wild That Was A Dream That Really Came True That Night..''
