Wilt Chamberlain’s Philadelphia Warriors uniform from his rookie season is hitting a memorabilia stock market, where you can own a share for as much as a pair of Nike socks.

The two-time NBA champion wore the threads from 1950 to 1960 when he was named the NBA’s Rookie of the Year after leading the league in points and rebounds, averaging 37.6 and 27.0 respectively.

David Kohler, president of SCP Auctions, is selling off the prized jersey through 95,620 shares in the initial public offering, which is valued at $1.275 million USD. Collectors can own a part of history without shelling out a fortune, following the way you purchase any traditional stock.

“This is one of the finest game-worn uniforms known to exist in the basketball memorabilia industry,” Kohler stated. “His rookie uniform, supported by photo documentation that is unprecedented for its era, ranks not only as the finest basketball uniform in the world, but one of the finest uniforms from any sport, period.”

Kohler will be keeping 25% of the jersey while collectors can own a share for as low as $10 USD from Collectable’s official website.

In case you missed it, new details about the Knicks’ 2010 pitch to LeBron James have emerged.
