The Iconic Series: 1978-79 Topps Julius Erving

 Dr. J's rookie card showed him in a Virginia Squires uniform and not many people remember him playing for that team. This card just beat out his 1977-78 and 1981-82 Topps cards. This card stands out because it is different, it shows him warming up and shooting in a Philadelphia 76er practice jacket and there is a nice head shot showing Dr. J enormous a-fro that he was famous for in his younger days. It also has a decent All-Star banner acknowledgement at the bottom of the card.  It was just a beautiful  blending of  Dr. J’s past and future.
