1961-1962 Fleer Basketball Complete SGC-Graded Set (66): #3 SGC Set Registry

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,233

Complete set of this significant basketball issue, entirely graded and encapsulated by SGC. The 1961-1962 Fleer basketball set is one of the very few basketball sets issued during this era. Included are many rookie cards of key Hall of Famers, including Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Roberston, and Jerry West. This set is rated as the number-three set on the "SGC Set Registry" with an overall grade average of 65.87. This is a sharp-looking set across the board with most cards (80%+) grading Ex to Nr/Mt without reference to centering, and with twelve cards downgraded to Vg or Vg-Ex strictly because of centering (approximately 80/20 or worse one way or another), which is typical for this issue. The SGC grades are as follows: Two NM+ 86: #30 and 48. Ten NM 84: #6, 12, 17, 20, 28, 32, 47 Chamberlain IA, 58, 64, and 65. Eleven EX/NM 80: #5, 14, 18, 22 K.C. Jones RC, 23 S. Jones RC, 33, 34, 40, 42, 52, and 59. Nine EX+ 70: #7, 8 Chamberlain RC, 10 Cousy, 19, 25, 51, 54, 56, and 60. Twenty-two EX 60: #1 Attles, 2, 3 Baylor RC, 4, 9, 11, 13, 15, 16, 24, 26, 29, 31, 35, 37, 43 West RC, 44 Wilkins RC, 46 Baylor IA, 49 Cousy IA, 50, 55, and 66 West IA. Eleven VG/EX 50: #21, 27, 36 Robertson RC, 38 Russell, 39, 41, 53, 57, 61 Robertson IA, 62 Russell IA, and 63. One VG 40: #45. This is a very crisp, clean, strong complete set. The equivalent SMR value for the individual cards (not including the eleven VG/EX 50 and one VG 40) is $2,530. Total 66 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,233
