Description
This Matt Guokas basketball card is number 18 in a series of 264 manufactured by the Topps Company Inc. for the 1973-1974 NBA season. The front of the card features an in-game action photo of the Kansas City-Omaha Kings guard. The card’s reverse features a small cartoon image illustrating the factoid that “Matt constantly keeps the Ball Moving,” as well as a short biographical sketch and career statistics.
