Pistol Pete

The Pirates were rained out for the second night in a row so lets showoff some vintage cardboard.  
1970-71 Topps Pete Maravich RC

I obtained this Maravich in a bulk deal from a friend of mine in college who owned a card shop.  He bought a huge stack of vintage NBA cards from someone who needed cash fast so he was able to pass on some savings to me. In 2010 I sold most of my high end cards to focus my collection on the Pirates and WVU, but thankfully decided to hold on to the vintage cards.  The Maravich has nothing to do with my collecting focus but I was always fond of it.  

Thanks for reading!


  1. Great card. I found one last Sept. at the flea market and added it to my collection. One of my favorite basketball cards in the collection.

  2. Very cool card, i would love to add a Pistol Pete rookie to my collection some day.

    1. You can find some ungraded versions fairly affordable. Fuji even found one at the flea market.
