Description

When the Indiana State Sycamores, led by Larry Bird, and the Michigan State Spartans, fronted by Magic Johnson, met for the 1979 NCAA Basketball National Championship, few could imagine the impact these figures would have on the basketball landscape. These legends single-handedly brought the NBA out of a decade-long tailspin and back to the national forefront. Offered is a pair of 1980-1981 Topps Basketball uncut sheets which feature multiple rookie panels from these roundball greats. Measuring approximately 28-1/2 x 43-1/2, included on these sheets are (2) #6 Bird/Erving/M. Johnson RC, (2) #48 Bird TL/Sikma, #49 Bird TL/Brewer, #94 Bird/Cartwright, #98 Bird TL/Sikma and #165 Bird TL/Brewer. Forming (11) twelve-card rows, these sheets each contain (132) panels or (396) individual cards. Having survived the past quarter-century quite well, these sheets are mostly crease-free and exhibit crisp perforations and clean surfaces. Other NBA royalty found scattered on these sheets are Abdul-Jabbar, Barry, Erving, Gervin, Maravich and Walton. Scarcely found in sheet form, this pair is an optimum display piece.
