In August 1963, Jerry Lucas finally signed with Warren Hensel, who was then in process of briefly becoming the team's owner. Signing the locally well-known Middletown and Ohio State star surged ticket sales for the team which had steadily declined in the two seasons before his signing. Attendance at Royals games doubled during Lucas first season of 1963-64. His role on the team would again be chiefly rebounding and other support play, but he scored 20 or more points several times, and led the league in field goal percentage as a rookie. Jerry Lucas has hand signed this Cincinnati Royals 8x10 Photo. JSA Authentication Sticker & JSA Certificate of Authenticity. Custom White Mat and Premium Black Color Framed.
