Flynn Robinson Basketball Card

This Flynn Robinson basketball card is number 40 in a series of 175 that was manufactured by the Topps Company Inc. for the 1970-1971 National Basketball Association season. The card is longer than standard cards, measuring 2½" by 4 11/16". The front of the card features a posed picture of the Cincinnati Royals guard on a blue background. The card’s reverse features a small cartoon image illustrating the factoid that “Flynn’s nickname is the ‘Electric Eye’” as well as a short biography and career statistics.
Flynn played eight seasons in the NBA and ABA as a member of the Cincinnati Royals, Chicago Bulls, Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers, Baltimore Bullets, and San Diego Conquistadors. In 1970, Robinson was named to his only NBA All-Star team and led that league in free throw percentage with an .898 average. In 1972, Robinson also won an NBA championship as a member of the Lakers.
