1972 Icee Bear Project -- # 13: Sidney Wicks, Slabbed A PSA 8

Here's another piece of the large 1972 Icee Bear lot I bought from eBay recently. For $7.50 I was able to add a really interesting and accomplished player to the project, one who attended the junior college (Santa Monica College) and 4-year college (UCLA) that I also attended, which is a cool cherry on top of the pickup.

Sidney Wicks -- the second pick in the '71 Draft behind Icee SP Austin Carr -- was Rookie of The Year in 1971-72 after averaging 24.5 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 4.3 assists in his first campaign. The LA native won three National Titles in Westwood and had his jersey retired by the Bruins.

  1. Never heard of Wicks before, so I looked him up. Wow. He kick his career off with 4 straight NBA All-Star game appearances. Not too shabby.
