About this set: This oddball 46 card set was originally issued in 1968 from the Basketball HOF Bookstore. The following 9 cards were added and are one pain in the ass to find in any condition. 1969-Bernard Carnevale/Bob Davies ( There are two versions of the Davies card Holding Ball/Portrait), 1970-Bob Cousy/Bob Petit/Abe Saperstein, 1972-Dolph Schayes and the toughest one 1974-Bill Russell. All of these 8 cards unlike the regular series have the inscription on the bottom "Basketball Hall Of Fame Springfield Mass." The only other card that bares this inscription on the bottom is a John S. Roosma card in which the picture on the card differs from the set Roosma. This card was probably issued one of those years outside the regular set but I really do not know when. An educated guess for this card and the Davies Portrait card may be the missing years of 1971 and 1973.
