Nate Archibald Basketball Card

Description
This Nate Archibald basketball card is number 169 in a series of 264 that was manufactured by the Topps Company Inc. for the 1972-1973 National Basketball Association season. In the 264 card set numbers 161 through 170 were cards of the previous year’s NBA All-Stars. The front of the card features an in-game action photo of the Cincinnati Royals guard. The card’s reverse notes Archibald’s All-League honors next to a figure shooting a basketball, and includes his stats in previous All-Star games.
Nate “Tiny” Archibald was a six-time All-Star, and in 1973 led the NBA in points per game (34.0) and assists per game (11.4). As a member of the Boston Celtics in 1981, he won the All-Star Game MVP and the NBA title. He was later enshrined in the Hall of Fame in 1991, and named one of the NBA’s 50 greatest players in 1996.
