Oscar Obert

Elected to the Hall of Fame with Jacobs was another "shoo-in," Oscar Obert. Oscar won more open USHA national championships than any other player in the history of the game, accumulating 20 crowns. - Four wall: singles, 1962 and 1963; three-wall: singles, 1962; doubles, 1957, 1959, 1960, 1964, 1965, and 1967; one-wall: singles, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1963, 1964, and 1965; doubles, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, and 1963. All his one-wall and three-wall doubles titles were achieved with his brother, Ruby. Oscar developed into a champion four-waller comparatively late in his career mainly because he had concentrated on one-wall. He brought a real crowd appeal to handball as a tremendous competitor, exciting all-out shooter, with championship "killer instinct" demeanor on the court.
