The call by the Celtics' raspy-voiced play-by-play announcer, Johnny Most has endured throughout history:

"Greer is putting the ball into play. He gets it out deep and Havlicek steals it! Over to Sam Jones! Havlicek stole the ball! It's all over! It's all over! Johnny Havlicek is being mobbed by the fans! It's all over! Johnny Havlicek stole the ball!"

The floor section that was ground zero for that signature moment in the history of professional basketball’s greatest dynasty is showcased here n a large shadowbox (32” by 45” by 4") and accompanied by a dedicated audio player which blasts Most's famous call at the press of a button. This is a monumental artifact of Boston Celtics history with multi-faceted exhibition value whether displayed publicly in a commercial establishment, a corporate environment, or as a cornerstone of an elite private collection.
