High-grade collection of eight complete sets (four regular and four stickers) from all four Fleer Basketball sets produced during the 1980s. The undisputed highlight of this collection is the 1986-1987 Fleer set, which is in outstanding condition given its condition-sensitive flush-to-the-border design. The 1986-1987 set is headlined by Michael Jordan's rookie card (BGS 6.5) and is jam packed with all the other stars and Hall of Famers that make these 1980s Fleer sets so popular. This collection consists of the following: 1) 1986-1987 Fleer (132 cards): 56% Nr/Mt-Mt or better and 44% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt (including a few lesser).
