Dick Van Arsdale Basketball Card

Description
This Dick Van Arsdale basketball card is number 95 in a series of 264 that was manufactured by the Topps Company Inc. for the 1972-1973 National Basketball Association (NBA) season. The front of the card features a posed picture of the Phoenix Suns guard on a blue background. The card’s reverse features a small cartoon image illustrating the factoid that “Dick works as a sports broadcaster,” as well as a short biography and career statistics.
Dick played 12 seasons in the NBA from 1965-1977. He spent his first three seasons with the New York Knicks, and the rest of his career with the Phoenix Suns where he was a three-time All-Star. Van Ardale was also named to the All-Rookie Team in 1966 and the All-Defensive Team in 1974. Dick's twin brother, Tom Van Arsdale, was also a three-time All-Star in the NBA.
