Complete Visual Guide to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Cards

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was literally a giant among men, towering over seven feet in height and dominating the NBA for many years. Although he was a disruptive force on defense, Abdul-Jabbar was most feared on the offensive side of the game and is still the all-time NBA leader for points scored in a career. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's vintage cards maintain considerable popularity and, outside of his rookie card, are generally not rough on the wallet.

While the cardboard options were not exactly plentiful when Kareem Abdul-Jabbar roamed NBA courts, there was still consistent basketball card production for most of that time. Starting with the Milwaukee Bucks and finishing with the Los Angeles Lakers, the bulk of his career was covered by Topps, with Star Company and Fleer filling in at the end. Abdul-Jabbar's rookie card, found in 1969-70 Topps, is his most valuable card and all the cards referenced below remain in decent supply.

For a complete look at Kareem Abdul-Jabbar collectibles, including key autograph cards and an autographed memorabilia guide, view our Kareem Abdul-Jabbar profile.

The following list includes images for each of the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar primary base cards, and at least one card is included for nearly every year of his active playing career. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar officially changed his name from Lew Alcindor in 1971, but it was not reflected on his Topps cards until 1972-73. There were no official NBA cards during the 1982-83 season and the various subset and insert cards from each product are not included. Team, oddball and regional cards were also produced during this time, but they are not featured in the list.
