Neal Walk Basketball Card

Description
This Topps Neal Walk basketball card is number 82 in a series of 264 that was manufactured by the Topps Company Inc. of New York, New York for the 1972-1973 National Basketball Association (NBA) season. The front of the card features a posed picture of Phoenix Suns center Neal Walk. The card’s reverse features a small cartoon image illustrating the factoid that “Neal works out with weights,” as well as a short biography and career statistics.
Walk played 8 seasons in the NBA, playing with the Phoenix Suns, New Orleans Jazz, and New York Knicks. Walk has a claim to fame as being the Suns’ second overall pick in the 1969 NBA draft after they lost the coin flip to the Milwaukee Bucks for the first pick and the chance to draft Lew Alcindor (later Kareem Abdul-Jabbar).
