Presented is an ultra high-grade complete set of Fleer's "comeback" issue, entirely graded and encapsulated by SGC. This set marks the first basketball set produced by Fleer since 1961. Fleer stopped producing basketball cards after 1961 while its powerhouse competitor Topps continued to rule the basketball-card market through the late 1960s until the mid-1980s. This 132-card set is loaded with superstars and rookie cards of future Hall of Famers, highlighted by the rookie card of Michael Jordan. This is an outstanding high-grade set, with eleven GEM MINT 98s, two MINT 96s, twenty NM/MT+ 92s, eighty-eight NM/MT 88s, and eleven NM 84s. Also included is the complete eleven-card Stickers set in NM to NM/MT condition.
