1978-79T NBA Series I

Though the 1970s were winding down, the card designs were still vibrant and daring, like the 1978-79 NBA set. Utilizing a game action shot and a close up head shot left little room for the team name – unless you run it up the side of the card vertically! This made this style seem taller, which is always a desired orientation for basketball.

Though the regular set released in 1978 had 132 cards (yielding 6-7 players per team) several key players were missed. This complete series adds 2 or 3 more players per team plus five league leader cards, an NBA finals card (Bullets vs. Sonics), and an All-Star Game card! The Finals card features MVP Wes Unseld and the All-Star Game features MVP Randy Smith.

This is the first of three 18-card series with a smaller fourth series (10 cards) featuring the Milwaukee Bucks. Series one features:

Jazz:  Jim McElroy, Slick Watts
Bullets: Greg Ballard, Phil Chenier, Larry Wright, Charles Johnson
Hawks: Wayne "Tree" Rollins, Tom McMillen
Sonics: John Johnson, Bruce Seals
Blazers: Corky Calhoun, Lloyd Neal
Braves: Gus Gerard, Marvin Barnes, Bird Averitt
misc: NBA Finals, All-Star Game, 1978-79 wrapper card
