1985-86 Star Lakers Champs Set - Summary 

These cards were mostly distributed in 1986 at the LA Forum, shortly following the Lakers victory over the Celtics in the 1986 NBA Finals.  An estimated 10,000 sets were produced.  The cards feature the trademark Star design with a 1986 in the top right corner. 


Here's a full poly bag for the 1985-86 Lakers Champs set.  The first card features a card of Kareem celebrating after the team's victory over the Celtics.

The last card in the set (#18) features a shot of the Lakers at the White House with a photo of then President Ronald Reagan.  This card would mark the only basketball card ever issued that featured a photo with President Reagan.

As with all Star sets, the set typically sells for more in the sealed poly bag.  For fans of the Lakers, a full set is still quite reasonable, as complete, sealed sets can often be found for less than $200, which averages out to a little more than $10 per card.
