The Crane disc set features discs that are 3 3/8” in diameter. This 20 disc MSA (Mike Schechter Associates, Inc.) set displays black and white portrait art by Charles Linnett, the NBA Players Association logo,and a facsimile signature of the player. Each color border shows the player height, weight, college, and NBA career years. They say “National Basketball Players Association" and include the year on the border as well. In contrast to the Buckman's discs, these discs display "Crane" above the player portrait instead of 4 stars. The back has the Crane Potato Chips logo. These discs were distributed by Crane Potato Chips of Decatur, Illinois. It is highly likely that Crane worked with MSA to have these discs made. MSA produced a variety of sports discs, many using Gugler Lithographic Co. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
