Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. Based on the photographs and description provided, the subject of this appraisal is a signed lithograph depicting the 1965-66 University of Kentucky men's basketball team known affectionately as "Rupp's Runts". This lithograph features signatures from Pat Riley, Tom Kron, Louie Dampier, Larry Conley, and Thad Jaracz. The style of the signatures matches known examples of each of the signers but it is unknown if the signatures are authentic. (Other examples of this lithograph do not include signatures, so they are not preprinted). This UK team lost in the National Championship game to Texas Western in 1966.
According to the current owner, the piece was acquired via inheritance.
Factoring in autograph values of the individual signers, the presentability of the piece as a whole, and the collection of all signatures on one piece, a Fair Market Value (pre-auction estimate) of this piece if signatures were authenticated by a reputable third party and determined to be legitimate and authentic would be estimated at $250 to $500 US.
