1984-85 Star LA Lakers Arena Set - Summary 

The set, as with other Arena sets was handed out at local arenas, in the case of the Lakers, at the LA Forum during the 84-85 NBA season. 

Here's a full poly bag for the 1984-85 Lakers set.  The first card features Kareem with his patented alley-oop over Jeff Ruland of the Bullets.  Could the shorts get any shorter? 🙂 


As with all other Star Arena sets, 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 #10 Kareem, which is actually a 'League Leaders' card.
