I've got a few items I just recently found, from the Houston Rockets championship era. I thought I'd donate them to Clutchfans.net, as a tip jar auction.
The first two (top row), entitled "Believe It!" and "Believe it! Again!" are two booklets from the Houston Chronicle, written by Eddie Sefko and Fran Blinebury. "Believe It!" covers the first Rockets championship, "Believe It! Again!" covers the back-to-back second championship. Each booklet consists of about 75 pages of full color photographs and text. Both are in excellent condition, without even any creases on the spines. "Believe!" has a tear-out poster in the back that has never been torn out.
The other two items (bottom row) are from Sports Illustrated. The one on the left is a "Special Collectors Edition" completely devoted to the second championship. The other "Hail to the Champs" is the July 4th, 1994 edition of Sports Illustrated. These two magazines are showing normal wear and tear, being 10 years old and made of lesser quality paper.
Check out the photographs I took below:
