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 Bucks 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 Alex English, Lloyd Walton, Ernie Grunfeld, Kent Benson, 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 one of four series of custom RetroCards featuring many familiar players who didn't have cards in the original 1978-79 set.
