Photo: Bill Cosby playing for the Harlem Globetrotters in 1972

In 1972 the Harlem Globetrotters signed comedy legend Bill Cosby to an honorary $1 lifetime contract.  It’s unclear if Bill played more than one game with the Globetrotters, but they raised his salary to a whopping $1.05 in 1986.  Not a bad deal for someone who was a star athlete at Temple University.  More classic Globetrotter photos and your music pairing after the jump.
