    Description

    1969 Topps Lew Alcindor #25 PSA NM-MT 8. Three things to remember about Kareem. First, he was in the national spotlight for thirty years straight -- from St. Jude's elementary school in 1960 to Game Six of the 1989 NBA Finals. Second, he was always great -- three titles and three MVPs in high school, three titles and three MVPs in college, and six titles and six MVPs in the pros. Third, he never really got hurt.

    Much like artifacts related to Cassius Clay, collectors are particularly drawn to pieces predating this Hall of Fame legend's conversion to Islam and subsequent name change to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The amplified dimensions of these "tall boy" cards have made such clean examples a rare find, so collectors should pay very close attention to this lot. High quality corners, problem-free and admirable centering which seems to be the lone reason for the PSA NM-MT 8 assessment. Rookie cards of Hall of Famers have been the hottest commodity lately. This could prove a smart acquisition for the investor or Hall of Famer specialist.
