Bunny Leavitt TShirt

Chicago IL - 1928

Bunny Leavitt was a phenom as a gritty little kid in the Boys’ Brotherhood Republic of Chicago - a club founded by Jack Robbins to keep juveniles on the straight and narrow. He set a free throw record there by caging 73 successive shots.

He played in the extremely competitive YMCA and AAU leagues for several years all the while putting on free throw clinics and breaking his own world records, from 316 to 425 to finally 499 free throws in a row. A record that stands to this day.

He spent the remainder of his career traveling with a little team called the Harlem Globe Trotters.
