Being that we're talking 1971, I got another opportunity to use my funkiest design, the one inspired by the 1971-72 Topps basketball set. It's one of my favorites. This was the third card I've done in this style, but only the first where I got to use a color photo. Truth be told, I kind of like how the black-and-white photos contrast against the solid colored rectangle.
For the color scheme I matched it to the Pacers cards from that set. Easy choice, right?
