Like on the main forum, let's do one a day per poster. I will start with this highlight of my collection:



My favorite Wilt card and probably my favorite childhood basketball card. I vividly recall getting it in a collection of cards in the mid-1970s.

If Wilt wasn't enough to get me to start building this set this helped make the decision as the 2nd card for my set.

Great Thread Adam. That is a sharp looking 69 Wilt you have. The "BiG O" is one of my favorite players.

1971-72 Topps Trio set. According to the SCD article (link below) these were inserts in regular 1971-72 Topps basketball wax packs. I picked up the full set at the National a few years ago for $100 which I thought was kind of steep. I visited the dealer a few times and he wouldn't budge on the price. Finally the last day of the show I hadn't spent all my money and the set was still sitting in his binder so I forked over the cash. Glad I did now.

I spent a lot of time during the pandemic digging out boxes and organizing my collection. Found the stickers and was missing more than I thought. Then again I also found an index card box that had all kind of stickers that 12 year old me pasted stickers on.

Down to two of the ABA ones to finish (I had no ABA stickers in my collection)
