    1956 Slater Martin Photograph - Image Used for His 1957-58 Topps Card. A seven-time All-Star and five-time NBA champ, Slater Martin is the only Texas Longhorn who currently resides in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame - but given how adept Kevin Durant is at nearly everything on the court, his sole claim won't last forever.

    Snapped in late-1956 or early-1957 after he joined Bob Pettit's St. Louis Hawks, this 8x10" photograph was used as the basis for his card (#12) in the loaded 1957-58 Topps set. Brilliantly preserved throughout the years, this is one of the first photographs we have ever seen that uses images from Topps' basketball debut.
