Autographed 1961 Fleer Greats Collection (65 Different with 36 Hall of Famers!)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,133.00

Collection of sixty-five different 1961 Fleer Greats cards (out of 154 cards in the set), plus one duplicate (for a total of sixty-six signed cards), all signed on the front by the respective player. Of the sixty-five different signers, thirty-six are Hall of Fame players. The 1961 Fleer set includes many stars who passed away long before the set was issued. This collection of sixty-five different signed cards represents a near-complete set of all cards which could possibly be signed. Approximately ninety-two cards could theoretically have been signed, though for some it is doubtful if more than a few, if any, autographed examples exist. That count includes the Ty Cobb card, which we don't believe was ever signed (Cobb died in July 1961; the set was issued in the summer of 1961), as well as the cards of such players as Rixey (d. 1963) and Newsom (d.1962), both of whom had a very short window of potential signing time. Signatures, penned in a variety of inks, range in grade from "6" to "10," averaging "8/9." Most of the cards display normal handling wear and are in Very Good condition overall, with some slightly lesser or slightly better. The collection is comprised of the following cards: #7 Bancroft, 12 Carey, 20, 25 Feller, 26, 27, 29 Frick, 30 Frisch, 32 Gehringer, 33 Giles, 34 Gomez, 35 Goslin, 37 Grimes, 38 Grove, 39 Hafey, 40 Haines, 41 Hartnett, 44 Hoyt, 45 Hubbell, 50 Kiner, 55 Lombardi, 57 Manush, 58 (two examples), 61 Medwick, 63 Mize, 66 Newhouser, 69, 70 Rice, 72 Roush, 74 Ruffing, 76 Sewell, 78 Sisler, 84 L. Waner, 86 Wheat, 90, 93, 94 Boudreau, 97, 100 Coveleski, 103, 104 (signed on front and back), 105 Ferrell, 107, 109, 110, 113, 114, 115 T. Jackson, 116, 119, 121, 122 Lyons, 128, 131, 132, 134, 136 Schalk, 137, 138, 139, 140, 142 Terry, 145, 146, and 147. Total: 66 signed cards representing 65 different players. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,500+.
