1961-1962 Fleer Basketball Complete SGC-Graded Set (66)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,251.50

Complete set of this significant basketball issue, entirely graded and encapsulated by SGC (except for one PSA). 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 Robertson, and Jerry West. This is a very presentable set across the board with several of the lower-graded cards downgraded due to centering, which is typical for this issue. The SGC grades are as follows: One NM/MT 88: #18 Hagan RC. Two NM 84: #16 Greer RC and 21. Ten EX/NM 80: #7, 14 Gola, 26, 28, 31, 34 Pettit, 37, 39 Schayes, 60 Ramsey IA, and 61 Robertson IA. Ten EX+ 70: #15, 23 Sam Jones RC, 27, 46 Baylor IA, 48, 52, 59 Pettit IA, 62 Russell IA, 63 Schayes IA, and 66 West IA. Nineteen EX 60: #1 Attles RC, 2 Arizin RC, 3 Baylor RC, 5, 8 Chamberlain RC, 9, 10 Cousy, 29 Lovellette, 32, 33, 41, 43 West RC (PSA 5), 45 Arizin IA, 47 Chamberlain IA, 49 Cousy IA, 56, 57, 58 Lovellette IA, and 64. Thirteen VG/EX 50: #4 Bellamy RC, 6, 12, 17, 19 Heinsohn, 22 K.C. Jones RC, 24, 35, 38 Russell, 44 Wilkens RC, 51 Gola IA, 54 Heinsohn IA, and 55 Howell IA. Eight VG 40: #11, 20 Howell RC, 25, 40, 42 Twyman, 50, 53 Hagan IA, and 65 Twyman IA. Three GOOD 30: #13, 30, and 36 Robertson RC. This lot represents a strong foundation for a mid- to high-grade set of this classic basketball issue. The equivalent SMR value for the individual cards (not including the twenty-four cards graded VG/EX or less) is $2,139. Total: 66 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+. SOLD FOR $2,251.50
