How the hell did I get all these basketball cards?

I've ended up with all sorts of oddball stuff over the years, some of which I have no idea how I got in the first place. These '81-'82 Topps Basketball cards are a classic example of that. Not entirely sure how I got them, but I did get some, and here's what I have:

Magic looks like he's flying past these Washington Bullets (Remember when someone thought that team name was a good idea?).


That ball's totally not going in. I actually have 2 of the Bird Super Action cards, one a little worse for wear. Need to add my double to my trade list.

OK, now we are getting somewhere! The Doctor is in! He looks like he's asking someone how bad of an asskicking they'd like here.

Man, look at how helpless Bird looks in the background of this shot.

I've got two of this McHale rookie, too. Trade bait!

Joey: Wait a minute. I know you. You're Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. You play basketball for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Roger Murdock: I'm sorry son, but you must have me confused with someone else. My name is Roger Murdock. I'm the co-pilot.
Joey: You are Kareem! I've seen you play. My dad's got season tickets.
Roger Murdock: I think you should go back to your seat now Joey. Right Clarence?
Captain Oveur: Nahhhhhh, he's not bothering anyone, let him stay here.
Roger Murdock: But just remember, my name is...
[showing his nametag]
Roger Murdock: ROGER MURDOCK. I'm an airline pilot.
Joey: I think you're the greatest, but my dad says you don't work hard enough on defense.
[Kareem's getting mad]
Joey: And he says that lots of times, you don't even run down court. And that you don't really try... except during the playoffs.
Roger Murdock: [breaking character] The hell I don't! LISTEN KID! I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night. Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes. 

Man, I love that movie.
