1978-79 Milwaukee Bucks: Green & Growing
The 1978-79 Basketball set was always a favorite, with the vertical team name and two photos per card - an action shot and a head shot - a sharp looking design. The Milwaukee Buck took second place in the Midwest Division in 1977-78 and had built a fine team under Don Nelson – a team that would take first place in their division every year from 1980-1986. This Milwaukee Bucks team set features a couple up-and-coming players like Alex English, Lloyd Walton, Ernie Grunfeld, and Kent Benson plus some older roll players such as Norm Van Lier and Jim Eakins. Also included are coach Don Nelson, GM Wayne Embry, a team card, and pop artist Robert Indiana, who painted the classic design on the MECCA Arena floor, which was completed for the 1977-78 season. This set is coming soon and is one of four series of custom RetroCards featuring many familiar players who didn't have cards in the original 1978-79 set. Get yours here.
