    1969 Topps Lew Alcindor #25 PSA NM 7. The marquee card of one of the NBA's marquee players. The ground breaking and oversized 1969 Topps basketball set appeared at the perfect time as it coincided with the rookie season of the future NBA All-Time Points Leader in a then 22-year old Lew Alcindor, fresh out of a very successful years with UCLA (just three NCAA Championships) who would become world renown under his Muslim name Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

    During his 20 years with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Los Angeles Lakers Abdul-Jabbar was the NBA's Most Valuable Player six seasons. He was the MVP of the Finals twice. His 19 All-Star game appearances is an NBA record. All-NBA and NBA All-Defensive Team honors were commonplace for the man who was part of a half-dozen NBA championship teams plus two as an assistant coach. If he was on your team, making the playoffs was almost inevitable. When he retired, the NBA had a new all-time leader in games played, points scored, field goals, field goal attempts, minutes played, blocked shots, defensive rebounds, career wins, and well, personal fouls but that goes hand-in-hand with being great. It isn't always pretty.

    He has been called "the greatest player in college basketball history" and the second greatest player in the NBA by ESPN. He was named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History. Outside of basketball, he was an actor, a best-selling author, and a martial artist trained by Bruce Lee and has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. His rookie debut is one of the most coveted cards in the hobby. With a ting of irony we state the grade is a reflection of the vertical centering. Graded PSA NM 7.
