(LOT 101)
1969 Topps #25 Lew Alcindor Rookie PSA 8 NM-MT

ALCINDOR ROOKIE!!! Presented here is the iconic rookie card of the legendary Lew Alcindor, with this PSA 8 NM-MT 1969 Topps #25 subject representing only 3% of the approximate 5,000 PSA encapsulated copies revealing this hallowed assessment! A bona fide testament to his career, it was issued before Lew Alcindor changed his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and resides as the perfect cardboard keepsake for his magnificent career. Alcindor's 38,387 points (24.6 PPG) was recently bested by superstar LeBron James, with his 17,440 rebounds (11.2 RPG) and 3,189 blocked shots (2.5 BPG) both ranking #3 in NBA history. He played in a record 19 All-Star games, won six MVP awards and claimed six NBA titles, two of which he was voted the NBA Finals MVP.

Synonymous with Abdul-Jabbar's unfathomable playing excellence is this breathtaking memento's immaculate attributes, with the brilliant pose depicting this NBA immortal in a classic shooting position as he is about to score another basket. Sparkling colors, square corners, a blinding white background, relatively fine centering, and pack-fresh surfaces merit the sanctified assessment, and its overall awe-inspiring eye-appeal would arguably compete with some of the higher graded specimens. Truly sufficing as one of the most significant basketball cards extant, this offering serves as a sheer reminder of Abdul-Jabbar's standing as one of the NBA's all-time best. Proudly residing alongside other momentous rookie issues such as the 1948 Bowman Mikan, 1957 Topps Russell, 1961 Fleer Chamberlain, and 1986 Fleer Jordan, its illustrious stature merits it a final resting place in any esteemed basketball gathering!
