1984 Star Celtics Champs Set - Summary 

These cards were distributed in 1984 at the Boston Garden, following the Celtics victory over the Lakers in the 1984 NBA Finals.  An estimated 10,000 sets were produced.  The cards feature the trademark Star design with a 1984 in the top right corner. 


I really like how Star cataloged the events of the 1984 series....even getting quotes from players and coaches.  Check out the back of card #13 here:


From Pat Riley (on McHale's foul of Rambis):

 "It was as blatant a cheap shot as I've ever seen.  This changes the whole mood, and that is the mood it's going to be for the next three games.  They made a statement with that play.  It was like in a gang war, when the leaders meet the night before and decide on the weapons".

You can see a lot of that scrappiness in this video of the game:

Here's a full poly bag for the 1984 Star Celtics Champs set.  The first card features a card of Red Auerbach celebrating with Cedric Maxwell after the team's victory over the Lakers.
