After Topps' 12 year hiatus from printing basketball cards, they returned with consecutive years of 2 1/2" x 4 3/4" oversized issues. Following the '69-70 and '70-71's they returned to the standard sized cards and offered are the complete sets of the next two years. The 1971-72 set contains all (233) cards in mixed though mostly middle to upper middle grade condition. The keys grade: 1 Robertson (VG), 2 Bradley (EX), 47 Cowens (NM), 50 West (EX-MT), 55 Maravich (NM+), 70 Chamberlain (VG-EX), 100 Alcindor (EX-MT) and Barry (VG). The balance grades 20% NM or better, 50% EX to EX-MT and 30% VG-EX or lesser. The 1972-73 Topps set is the nicer of the two and features: #1 Chamberlain (VG-EX), 5 Maravich (EX-MT), 25 Robertson (NM), 32 P. Jackson (NM+), 100 Jabbar (EX), 195 Erving (EX-MT) and 255 Erving AS (EX-MT). The balance of the set grades 40% NM or better, 55% EX to EX-MT and 5% VG-EX or lesser. Two great early basketball sets.
