Jeff Mullins Basketball Card

Usage conditions apply
This Jeff Mullins basketball card is number 76 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 San Francisco Warriors guard on a light blue background. The card’s reverse features a small cartoon image illustrating the factoid that “Jeff’s great pride and desire is to see the team succeed,” as well as a short biography and career statistics.
Mullins began his career with the St. Louis Hawks from 1964 -1966, but after two subpar seasons he was left unprotected in the expansion draft and selected by the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls immediately traded him to the San Francisco Warriors (later Golden State) whom he played for until 1976, averaging nearly 20 points per game. While with the Warriors, Mullins was a three-time All-Star and won an NBA championship in 1975.
