Moses Malone parting the sea of basketballs. Malone was selected in the third round of the 1974 ABA Draft by the Utah Stars. The league  merged with the NBA in 1976. He landed in Houston Rockets. Malone led the NBA in rebounding in 1979, and was named league MVP.  He led the Rockets to the NBA Finals in 1981, and won his second MVP award in 1982. He was traded to Philadelphia in 1983 where he repeated as MVP and led the 76ers to the 1983 championship. 

Available in both title only and title & player name variations. Dated 1984 by the Nike/Upper Deck card set. We think that is the reprinted variation
