Presented is a high-grade near-complete set of Fleer's "comeback" issue, missing only #57 Jordan for completion. This set marks the first basketball set produced by Fleer since 1961. Fleer stopped producing basketball cards after 1961 while their powerhouse competitor Topps continued to rule the basketball-card market through the late 1960s until the mid-1980s. This set is loaded with superstars and rookie cards of future Hall of Famers. This is a beautiful set, bright and fresh throughout. Twenty-three cards are graded and encapsulated by PSA. PSA Grading Composite: Two PSA GEM MINT 10: #4 Ainge and 27 Dumars RC. Twenty-One MINT 9: #1 Abdul-Jabbar, 2, 7 Barkley RC, 9 Bird, 10, 11, 21, 26 Drexler RC, 31 Erving, 32 Ewing RC, 53 Magic Johnson, 66, 68 K. Malone RC, 73, 77 Mullin RC, 82 Olajuwon RC, 109 Thomas RC, 119, 121 D. Wilkins RC, 131 Worthy RC, and 132 Checklist. The remaining 103 cards grade 15% Nr/Mt-Mt, 35% Nr/Mt, and 50% Ex to Ex-Mt (almost all are downgraded due to a small corner ding and are otherwise Nr/Mt or better). This is a superb complete set (minus one) of this modern classic basketball issue loaded with highlights. The total SMR value for just the twenty-three graded cards is $2,840. Total: 131 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
