I sold some stuff on the old ebay and had some paypal cash burning a hole in my pocket. I lost a number of auctions trying to pick up a Nolan Ryan rookie and decided to change gears.
The Big Man!
What a great card.
Early ’70s topps basketball cards are a steal right now. This beauty cost me just over a benny. Kareem is one of the top 5 players all time. This card will never not be cool. It is easily one of the top 5 basketball cards all time.
I love the little dudes playing ball around the photo, so awesome.
The card is one of the oversized deals so the case is enormous.
It’s graded a 4 but looks a lot better than that to me. The biggest thing is the north/south centering, it’s pretty low. I bet I could send it back in and get it graded like a 7.5 OC.
I am really happy to add this to the old collection.
I am still looking for Dr. J and Moses Malone rookies. I really believe the next hot thing on cardboard will be ’70s bball rookies.
