Description
This Dick Cunningham basketball card is number 62 in a series of 264 that was manufactured by the Topps Company Inc. for the 1972-1973 National Basketball Association (NBA) season. The front of the card features a posed picture of the Houston Rockets center-forward on a pink background. The card’s reverse features a small cartoon image illustrating the factoid that “Dick was drafted as a football place kicker by Baltimore and Dallas,” as well as a short biography and career statistics. Cunningham played for the Rockets in 1971-1972, but was sold by the Rockets back to the Milwaukee Bucks before the 1972-1973 season began.
