Inkredible Inc., a New York-based company owned by NBA HOFer and Top 50 player Nate “Tiny” Archibald, announced the signing of six NBA HOF players to exclusive contracts. These contracts will guarantee that the players will not sign any other “stat” balls for a period of one year.
“When my fellow colleagues and I saw how many forgeries of our signatures were on the market, we decided it was time to take matters into our own hands and offer authentic autographs that we could have exclusive control over,” Archibald said. “We wanted to come up with an item that wasn’t available anywhere else in the world, so we created our own.”
Each player designs and approves their own ball and which pictures/statistics will be used. Each regulation size “stat” ball contains:
- Action photo of the player
- Authentic signature with HOF inscription on white autograph panel
- Career statistics
- Career accomplishments
- COA signed by player and Archibald
- Matching holograms on both ball and COA.
Players already signed include Rick Barry, Nate Archibald, George Gervin, Robert Parish, Nate Thurmond and Artis Gilmore. Several more players will be added by the end of the month, many of them Top 50 members.
Suggested retail price of the ball is $169, which includes shipping in the continental U.S. Basketballs are available exclusively at www.INKREDIBLE.biz. Website will be live Nov. 2. For further information, call Michael Dax at (516) 640-0855.
