290206 Dr. Dunkenstein 1982/83 (1986)
Darryl Griffith reported that he posed for the iconic poster after he signed with Nike in 1980 after leaving Louisville. Utah selected Griffith with the second overall pick in the 1980 NBA draft. He posed wearing a white lab coat and a doctors head mirror creating the character Dr. Dunkenstein which was his nickname from his Louisville days. The poster card is dated as 1986 by the 1994 Upper Deck/ Nike card set but we know he posed for the photo in the 1980/81 season so 1986 must be the second printing. .
Rim destroying Darryl Dawkins signed with Nike in July 1980. In return for wearing Nike shoes Dawkins, along with 25 other N.B.A. players, was made a member of Nike's Pro Club. In May of 1982 Dawkins broke his contract terms by wearing a pair of "Pony" sneakers. The subsequent lawsuit by Nike described in an Aug 1982 NY Times article indicated that " Dawkins's shoe switch came in the middle of the National Basketball Association playoffs -when his feet would be most conspicuous - and left Nike with 20,000 useless ''Chocolate Thunder'' posters.
This has been one of the rarer poster cards probably for the aforementioned reasons. This is the only example I have ever seen of this poster card.
