Posted By: <b>Jim VB</b><p>Thanks for the info. I had not heard that before. I wonder what kind of licensing issue they could have had. Wouldn't Topps have worked it through the NBA? Or was the league such a mess back then that they had to work it out with each team? <br /><br />You are correct though. There are only about 20-21 players in the entire set who's team name is visible in the picture. They are from Philly, Detroit, Milwaukee, San Diego, and one from Seattle.<br /><br />
