Old basketball cards

Look how fresh and well-designed basketball cards used to be! A photo of the player, a huge field of a single color in the background, and the team name in giant, clunky, angled type.

Pictured here is George Thompson's 1971 card from his stint playing for the Memphis Tams before he went on the play for the Bucks and then conceive his son.

Here's another one from the same series. My man can barely fit in the frame!
