The Milwaukee Bucks have a storied history that began in 1968. With the toss of a coin in 1969, the Bucks found themselves with one of the most dominating players of all time in Lew Alcidor, who soon officially changed his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Their only Championship happened almost immediately in the 1971 season, the franchises third season. A lot went into building that team and RetroCards has created a 1968 inaugural set commemorating the franchise’s first season.
Since NBA cards were sporadic in the 1960s, many fine players never appeared on a card. This 18-card set covers a lot of ground and features: Wayne Embry, Jon McGlocklin, Greg Smith, Bob Love, Don Smith, Len Chappell, Guy Rodgers, Flynn Robinson, Bob Warlick, Dick Cunningham, Fred Hetzel, Charlie Paulk, Sam Williams, and Dave Gambee. Other cards include coach Larry Costello, Voice Of The Bucks Eddie Doucette, a team card, and a logo card with checklist. This set is a fine example of RetroCard’s dedication to special teams and players that made a difference in the sport – no matter how big or how small.
