The Iconic Series: 1979-80 Topps Kareem Abdul Jabbar

This card stands out in my mind more than any other Jabbar or Alcinder card. His 1976-77 card came close as he appears to be so big on that oversized card that it appears that he has to bend down just to fit in the photo.

However, this card captures him in that Laker purple and gold, doing what he was most famous for on the court. Shooting the Sky Hook. He makes 6’10 Mitch Kupchak look like a midget trying to block that shot. Mitch literally would have to jump about 2 and half feet to block that ball. The All-Star logo is a nice added touch to the card.
