  1. Wilt the “Stilt” was one of the greatest basketball players of all time and scored 100 pts in one game against the NY Knicks! I doubt THAT will be ever done again! He will be always remembered as one of the greatest, but I never knew he played for the Harlem Globetrotters. You sure have one “helluva” card collection, my friend! PG
