We interrupt this primarily baseball themed blog for a feature about a mid-80s rookie basketball rookie card.
I was going through an old document a few weeks back that listed a bucket list of cards I wanted to add to my collection. This doc was pre-blog and even prior to expanding my collection to go after anything and everything Giants. The list included some 49ers certified autos, USC football autos, Baseball HOF autos and a few other random cards. When I was looking at the list, one card caught my eye that I don't think had crossed my minds since I made the list.
I went on the lookout and found a copy for a reasonable price so I pouced.
My memories of him as a King and this amazing card showing him high over the rim has always drawn me to this card and I am very happy to finally have a rookie card from this basketball legend in my collection.
