1984-85 Star Milwaukee Bucks Arena Set - Summary 

This set is mostly an afterthought aside from the Bob Lanier card which is worth several hundred dollars.  When Bob Lanier retired in late 1984, his card was pulled from the set, making it a short print.  While estimates from Star put the production on this 'Arena' set at 3000 cards, the Lanier card is well short of that number.  Note that the Star Arena set bags did not include a checklist.


Here's a full poly bag for the 1984-85 Bucks Arena set.  The first card features a cool shot of NBA great Nate Archibald going up against James Worthy.

The backs of the cards are a bit plainer than normal Star fashion with no stat line and a very simplified biography.  Here's the back of the team bag which shows the last card of Paul Pressey.

1984-85 Star Bucks Arena Set - Most Valuable Cards

Bob Lanier #6

The Lanier card was pulled from the sets following his retirement in late 1984, making his card from the set a short print and the most valuable card from the issue.  The other cards from the set are fairly inexpensive and complete sets (minus Lanier) can be found for between $30-$40.
