Default 2022 Acquisitions

Are we ready to start a new thread?

This card is from 1978-79, which was Malone's first MVP year.

I saw Moses play for the Spirits of St. Louis in 1975. Caldwell Jones was also on that team, and after the 1981-82 season, when Malone averaged 31 and 14 for the Houston Rockets and won his 2nd MVP, he was sent to the 76ers in a sign-and-trade for Jones and a draft pick. The next season, Malone won his 3rd MVP with the Sixers as he led them to the NBA Championship.

I still recall an anti-drug TV commercial Malone did in the early 80s. It was just him, drenched in sweat, slamming the ball against the backboard and catching it over and over, and either he or the announcer then says you can't do this if you're on drugs. Devastating. You could do a lot worse than have him in the low post. And you can talk about J all you want and not to take anything away from him, but Mo was the guts of those great teams.

Moses was truly an all-time great. I consider him in the top 25 players to ever play the game (I've got him at #21 for what its worth). Nobody, not even Kareem, could stop him in the low post!

Finishing up my graded 1971 set. Why collect the 1971 Topps Set? Because it had the greatest design in the history of basketball cards! Guys named "Skeeter," bright colors, ABA players, and many jerseys turned around backwards for the picture... love it. Just some "commons" here in these images.

No real value, but I am thrilled to add this Fred "Downtown" Brown regional RC. He was death in the 4th quarter with a game on the line.

Love the 1971 set, esp. since it was the first ABA set. I wouldn't exactly call Mack Calvin a common, though he is priced like one:

5 ABA All-Star (1971–1975)
3x All-ABA First Team (1971, 1974, 1975)
All-ABA Second Team (1973)
ABA All-Rookie First Team (1970)
ABA All-Time Team

Also a fan of the 71's, and 'Fro's. (Shout out to Jarrett Allen, All Star.)

Early 1960s PC-sized Wilt photo card. My guess is a fan mail reply card.

Nice Difusora. Haywood, Scott and White pre-rookie, I think.

Picked up this Rodman back in April and Pippen arrived yesterday. I like the look of the 1988 Fleer.

I thought this one was interesting:



1964 Bobbie Olympics. #5 for the USA that year was none other than HOFer Bill Bradley, so this is one of his first cards.
