Default "1969" NBAP Member Kareem Abdul Jabbar

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1969-NBAP-M...QAAOSwz-dfzqHJ

It's still a unique card, but PSA has the year wrong, it's probably from 1972 or the next couple of years. He didn't change his name until the 1972 season, for one thing. For another, I've seen pictures of an original 1969 basketball box from which these cards were but (own a couple of cards from it), and there is no Kareem. This card was issued later.

These are on the sides of shoeboxes. The set is commonly listed as a 1969 set but a look at the checklist disproves that date. My guess is that they were issued for several years through the late 1960s-early 1970s. The Kareem proves it.

Most of the cards were issued on the first box (a basketball box not a shoebox), which I think is indeed 1969. I have to see if I still have my pictures. A couple like Kareem were issued later.

Yep, that was my box. I got it at an auction for $5 or $10 (Can't remember now, but I got it for the first bid that came out of the auctioneer's mouth). Had it on a shelf in my basement for a few years and one of my cats got into it and tore it a bit. I cut the cards out and sent them all to PSA. The first batch I sent in got A grades and the second batch all got number grades. I sold the entire collection to someone on ebay who was actually buying it for someone that I guess wanted to remain anonymous. The cards were never issued on shoe boxes like PSA says. This information was passed on to PSA by several collectors years ago and for some reason they won't change their description of the cards.
