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.

  1. By the time I'd start watching the occasional tennis match... Ashe had retired from competing. But I remember learning about his legacy after he passed away.

    1. For me that was the golden age of tennis. The game was less about power and more about strategy than it seems to be today. Maybe I'm going to sound too nostalgic but the players seemed to have more personality in those days too. I'm sure I watched the match but I have no memory of it.

    1. Waxing nostalgic again, I miss the NBC Wimbledon theme music and the inimitable Bud Collins.
