Fred Crawford Basketball Card

This Fred Crawford basketball card is number 162 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 Buffalo Braves guard on a yellow background. The card’s reverse features a small cartoon image illustrating the factoid that “Fred spends his spare time working with underprivileged youth,” as well as a short biography and career statistics.
Crawford played in the NBA from 1966 to 1971 with the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks, Buffalo Braves, and Philadelphia 76ers. In 1968 and 1969, Crawford played in the NBA Finals as a member of the Lakers.
