1951-2004 Hall of Famer and Stars Basketball Rookie-Card Collection (68)

Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $7,050

Eclectic collection of sixty-eight different high-quality basketball cards from thirty-five different sets, dating from 1951 to 2004, all graded and encapsulated by PSA or SGC (except six BVG, two GAI, and one SCD). The collection is comprised exclusively of Hall of Famers and stars and was assembled one card at a time over a period of many years by a very dedicated, extremely advanced collector whose main interest was rookie cards (from all sports), with a primary focus on completeness, properly defining what cards represent each player's rookie card, condition, and overall eye-appeal. This is an extremely significant ultra high-grade rookie basketball-card collection that cost a small fortune to assemble, put together by a world-class collector whose efforts we believe will someday be looked at as far ahead of his time. The collection consists of the following: 1) 1951 Berk Ross (2 cards): #1-11 Cousy (PSA NM 7) and 4-11 Sherman (SGC NM 84). 2) 1957-1958 Topps (2 cards): #10 Arizin (PSA NM-MT 8) and 24 Pettit (PSA NM-MT 8). 3) 1960 Kahn's Wieners (1 card): West (PSA GOOD 2). 4) 1961-1962 Fleer (1 card): #3 Baylor (PSA NM-MT 8). 5) 1963 Topps Baseball (1 card): #54 DeBusschere (PSA NM-MT 8, DeBusschere was a star in two sports, both baseball and basketball). 6) 1964 Topps Baseball (1 card): #247 DeBusschere (PSA NM-MT 8, DeBusschere was a star in two sports, both baseball and basketball). 7) 1968 Jack In The Box (2 cards): Hayes (PSA MINT 9) and Riley (PSA MINT 9). 8) 1968 Hall of Fame (2 cards): Irish (SGC MINT 96) and Wooden (SGC VG/EX 50). 9) 1969-1970 Panini (1 card): #287 Meneghin (SGC NM/MT 88). 10) 1969-1970 Topps (1 card): #98 Frazier (PSA NM-MT 8). 11) 1970-71 Panini (1 card): #245 Cosic (SGC NM+ 86). 12) 1971 Globetrotters (1 card): #11 Lemon (PSA MINT 9). 13) 1971-1972 Topps (2 cards): #152 Brown (PSA NM-MT 8) and 170 Barry (PSA MINT 9). 14) 1972-1973 Topps (1 card): #195 Erving (PSA MINT 9). 15) 1973-1974 Panini (1 card): #265 Belov (SGC NM 84). 16) 1973-1974 Topps (1 card): #135 McAdoo (PSA MINT 9). 17) 1974-1975 Topps (1 card): #39 Walton (PSA MINT 9). 18) 1975-1976 Topps (1 card): #254 Malone (PSA MINT 9). 19) 1977-1978 Topps (1 card): #111 Parish (PSA MINT 9). 20) 1977-1979 Sportscaster (6 cards): #60-08 Blazejowski (SGC MINT 96), 67-02 Lieberman (SGC MINT 96), 74-18 Bird (SGC NM/MT 88), 78-02 Johnson (SGC NM 84), 80-23 McGuire (SGC NM/MT+ 92), and 103-04 Meyers (SGC VG/EX 50). 21) 1981-1982 Georgetown Hoyas (complete set of 20): two cards graded by SGC: #4 Ewing (NM/MT+ 92) and 18 Thompson (EX/NM 80). 22) 1984-1985 Star (2 cards): #101 Jordan (GAI NM-MT 8) and 202 Barkley (GAI NM+ 7.5). 23) 1985 JMS Game (1 card): #4 Barkley (PSA MINT 9). 24) 1985 Nike (1 card): #2 Jordan (BVG GEM MT 9.5). 25) 1985-1986 Star (1 card): #166 Ewing (SCD NM 7). 26) 1986-1987 Fleer (2 cards): #68 Malone (BVG GEM MT 9.5) and 82 Olajuwon (SGC GEM 98). 27) 1986 Panini (1 card): #136 Sabonis (SGC VG 40). 28) 1989 Hoops (2 cards): #11 Daly (PSA GEM MT 10) and 138 Robinson (PSA GEM MT 10). 29) 1990-1991 Star Pics (1 card): #40 Calhoun (SGC VG/EX 50). 30) 1992-1993 Upper Deck (1 card): #1 O'Neal (BVG GEM MT 9.5). 31) 1996-1997 Topps Chrome (2 cards): #138 Bryant (PSA GEM MT 10) and 182 Nash (BVG GEM MT 9.5). 32) 1997-1998 SP Authentic (1 card): #128 Duncan (BVG GEM MT 9.5). 33) 2002-2003 Finest (1 card): #178 James (BVG GEM MT 9.5). 34) 2002 Press Pass (1 card): #34 Boeheim (SGC NM 84). 35) 2004-2005 Topps Total (1 card): #411 Popovich (SGC NM/MT+ 92).
