First it was Bowman in 1948, then Topps took a whack at it in 1957, and four years later in 1961, Fleer stepped up and tried their hand at trying to create a basketball card market only to discontinue the idea after one issue as well. While each company's attempt ended up as "one and done", all three sets are held in high regard today due to the cache of "rookie" cards included within each series and delivering that one hobby icon, whether it's George Mikan, Bill Russell, or in this case Wilt Chamberlain. But the '61 Fleer basketball set was produced in much lower quantity, and the combination of scarcity, poor centering, and important rookie cards of Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson, and Jerry West explains why the demand for high-grade 1961 Fleer basketball cards has never been stronger. This complete 66-card set is about as consistent as it gets with each card in the series graded PSA 7 save for four (#9 Costello PSA 8, 15 Green PSA 7.5, 24 Jordan PSA 8, and 58 Lovellette IA PSA 8). Boasting plenty of vibrant colors and mostly NM/MT or better sharpness to counteract the largely unavoidable shifts in framing, it's one of the finest collections ever assembled and an issue that ranks among the best ever produced.
