1972 Icee Bear Project -- # 14: Archie Clark SP, Slabbed A PSA 8

I just hit the 70% completion mark on my 1972 Icee Bear PSA 8 project. Today's pickup was a two-time All-Star who is most well-known for being part of the return package the Lakers sent to Philadelphia for some guy named Wilt Chamberlain.

Archie Clark is one of four SPs in the set. He is another of the four $7.50 acquisitions from the large lot I bought, the same large lot that I need to start in on the process of flipping the excess to recoup some dough. Clark led an interesting life, joining the military out of high school. He was part of the group that founded the National Basketball Retired Players Association. Most importantly, his nickname -- derived from his ability to cross opponents over -- is Ricky Bobby and Cal Naughton, Jr. approved: Shake and Bake!

Damn, these look beautiful lined up together.
