The 1972-1973 Topps basketball card set features a subset of cards (numbers 171-176) that highlighted the NBA statistical leaders from the previous year. Card number 173 features the NBA leaders in field goal percentage: Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Walt Bellamy. The front of the card features headshots of all three players, while the back lists the top ten NBA field goal percentage leaders, their teams, and their field goal percentage during the 1971-1972 season.
All three of these players on the card's front side have been enshrined in the Hall of Fame. Chamberlain was inducted in 1979, Bellamy in 1993, and Abdul-Jabbar in 1995.
