Arthur Ashe Makes History

It was on this date 45 years ago that Arthur Ashe beat the heavily favored defending champion Jimmy Conners to become the first and so far only Black man to win the Wimbledon men's singles championship.
This card is part of a 49 card set.  The cards are rather flimsy but the checklist is wide ranging and unique.

If you're into tennis or sports strategy this is a fascinating insight into how Ashe pulled off his big upset.
