NATIONAL BASKETBALL HALL OF FAME1973

Known as the "Babe Ruth of Basketball" during his playing career, Beckman was a drawing card wherever he played, and was once sold for an unheard amount of $10,000. His reputation on the court as a leader and skilled player, as well as a coach and youth educator, got him elected to the Hall of Fame in 1973, five years after his death at 75 years of age.
