Correct. Gene Conley is the only athlete to win and NBA and MLB championship - Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Braves. Sharman never played though I believe I read that he was on the bench during Bobby Thompson's home run.

If others have some early (pre WWII) pro basketball material throw it out here. It would be nice to see some of the items that are out there.

Hyee Auctions had five photos on ebay last week of Ft Wayne players from the 1920's ABL team. I picked up one of them (I believe this to be Homer Stonebraker aka Stonebreaker). Two of the other photos included basketball HOF Bennie Borgmann.
