1971-72 Basketball Set Gets A 3-Series Update!

One of the most popular basketball card designs is the 1971-72 set. Attractive stylized fonts and colorful background  make the players really jump off the card.

The original set contained 233 cards and RetroCards adds 60 additional cards in three series that covers all the NBA and ABA teams. Several pre-rookie cards, veterans, as well as All Star games, and NBA vs ABA exhibition games are included. A subset of Basketball Brothers, Rookies of the Year, MVP's, and Coaches of the Year complete this set.
