Top 100 Cards of My Collection-#53 02-03 Ultimate Collection Ultimate Signatures Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Basketball is my main sport that I collect, so I tend to favor Basketball legends over the other major sports so naturally I had to include the NBA's all time leading scorer in this countdown. Kareem Abdul Jabbar has one of the most decorated careers in not only the NBA but in NCAA history. Playing under the legendary John Wooden at UCLA, Kareem won 3 National Championships, 6 NBA titles with the Bucks and Lakers, was a 19 time All Star, NBA rookie of the year and the list goes on and on. His 38,387 points are 1st all time, and 3rd most rebounds all time at 17,440. Kareem could do it all, was one of the most dominant basketball players of all time. This card comes from the 02-03 Ultimate Collection set and has a nice clean design and full nice on card auto (which of course as you know by now is a MAJOR plus for me). I'm not sure the reason he only signs his last name, if someone knows feel free to fill me in, as I've always been curious, and he has been known to have certified autographs signed as Lew Alcindor (his birthname, and those are more expensive). Just a nicely done card of the master of the Skyhook and one of the NBA's greatest
players of all-time.

  2. Very nice. On card is the only way to go...but that's just my opinion. I have a number of sticker autos and they're just not as nice.
