This Shaler Halimon basketball card is number 127 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 inches by 4 ¾ inches. The front of the card features a posed picture of the Chicago Bulls guard on a yellow background. The card’s reverse features a small cartoon image illustrating the factoid that “Shaler came to the Bulls in the Jim Washington deal,” as well as a short biography and career statistics.
Hamilton played five years split between the NBA and ABA from 1968 to 1973. His best season was 1970-71 with the expansion Portland Trail Blazers averaging nine points and five rebounds per game. Hamilton also played for the Philadelphia 76ers, Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks, and Dallas Chaparrals.
