Whistle a chorus of Sweet Georgia Brown while reviewing this group of (3) Harlem Globetrotters programs. Ninety years of playing a circus-like brand of basketball have made the 'Trotters an American institution. These "clown princes of basketball" have lived up to their name by traveling around the world to perform their astonishing antics and humorous shennanigans for millions of fans. From the golden days of the 1950s, comes this trio of Globetrotters programs, with:

1951 World Series of Basketball program vs. College All-Stars (GD) with 3" spine split, player photos include Marques Haynes and "Goose" Tatum

1955 World Series of Basketball program vs. College All-Stars (GD+) with deference to detached but present centerfold, (16) autographs are located on interior pages (average "7" to "9") with HOFers Tom Gola and Jack Twyman; and balance with Jack Stephens, Dick Garmaker, Ed Conlin, Dick Hemric, Bob Schafer, Ed Fleming, Charlie Hoxie and (7) others

1955 "29th Season" program (GD+) with deference to centerfold being absent, signed on the front and throughout by (22) Globetrotters and opponents (average "8-9") with Charlie Hoxie, Ed Ferrari, Chris Harris, "Red" Klotz, Neil Johnson, Bob Schafer, Ed  Fleming, Bob Hall, Clarence Wilson, Jackie Moore and (12) others
