Basketball Cards Part 1

I don't know why, but I have these basketball cards from the 70's:As you can see by the Mel Daniels card on the bottom right, Mel was a selfish player; he was always thinking of himself (see thought bubble).

I have heard of Goodrich, Daniels, and Hawkins but I'm not old enough to remember the ABA. The Carolina Cougars were a NC regional team that played in Charlotte, Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and Raleigh. (What I wouldn't give for a Major League team like that!) The Cougars ended up as the the Spirits if St. Louis and were one of only 2 ABA teams to make it to the end and NOT join the NBA.

As cool as it is to own a card of a Carolina Cougars player, these cards want to be free of me.
I'll trade them to you for 1 baseball card
a really good reason that you should have them.

If my memory is correct, I'm pretty sure you inherited those cards...

(PS. That is not being offered as a reason that they should belong to me.)

Did this blog somehow just morph into a home improvement blog? The Bob Villa post has repercussions that no one could have predicted.
