Description
This Topps Dave Sorenson basketball card is number 14 in a series of 264 that was manufactured by the Topps Company Inc. of New York, New York for the 1973-1974 NBA season. The front of the card features a posed picture of Philadelphia 76ers forward Dave Sorenson. The card’s reverse features a small cartoon image illustrating the factoid that “Dave was married during the summer of 1972,” as well as a short biographical sketch and career statistics.
Sorenson's career in the NBA lasted from 1970-1973 with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers. So while this card was produced for the 1973-1974 season, Sorenson did not play that year.
