In 1960 Fleer would have preferred to put out a set featuring current stars, but was unable to do so due to Topps' ironclad contracts with all the modern players (except Ted Williams), so Fleer came up with the idea for this old-timers set to keep its foot in the trading-card game. This is a tremendous ultra high-grade set of this historic, and often overlooked, Fleer issue. The total SMR value for the individual cards is $5,816. Total: 79 cards. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000+.
