When I saw the sell sheet for the 2013 Topps Archives checklist, I got really excited to see Topps use the 1972 basketball design. These are just flat out cool looking cards. It's nice to see Topps use their rich history of card design to produce baseball cards using ideas from the other North American sports. Hopefully one day they can use something like 1971 Topps Football or 1984 Topps Football designs.

When these cards first hit the secondary market though, they were selling in the $5 range. I REFUSED to spend that much money, knowing that if I was patient I would be able to find them cheaper. Well, patience paid off and I added the above card for 85 cents delivered.
Above is the back of the card.
