A Seat Signed by Russell and Red
Date: 1950s to 1960s
Both Red Auerbach and Bill Russell signed this seat – stamped with the same number as Russell’s jersey – from the original Boston Garden. Only one NBA Finals series from 1957 to 1969 did not feature these two Celtics legends. In a book explaining his friendship with his old coach, Russell wrote, “My relationship with Red Auerbach was those complicated equations on Einstein’s board.” On the basketball court, the equation was simple: winning.
