A specially made 1/1 autographed edition of SLAM Magazine featuring NBA All-Star LaMelo Ball is up for auction.
The magazine, SLAM 237, features Ball in a futuristic recreation of the NBA logo with all the cover text given a metallic foil embossed treatment. The issue was autographed by Ball, authenticated by Beckett Grading Services and is being offered on eBay.
The magazine includes an in-depth interview with Ball, the 2021 NBA Rookie of the Year, as well as an exclusive photo shoot from acclaimed photographer Diwang Valdez. A standard, non-metallic version of the issue is releasing globally on newsstands and in bookstores now alongside limited Black Metal (60 copies) and Gold Metal (94 copies) editions.
“SLAM has produced exclusive, limited metal editions for a few years now, and with LaMelo being a player we’ve covered since his freshman year of high school and someone we know has an extremely bright future, the opportunity to do something special for collectors and partner with LaMelo on it made complete sense,” said Adam Figman, Chief Content Officer of SLAM.
