1963 Fleer Complete Set with Checklist (67)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,920

Exceptional high-grade set with 83% Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt (with a few better) and 17% Ex. The 1963 Fleer set is considered by many to be among the most attractive as well as significant issues of the early 1960s. These cards have long been a special favorite of collectors, and with good reason: They are far rarer than Topps issues from the era; they are unusual; they have a great significance to the history of the "bubble-gum card wars"; and the set is relatively small and includes so many great stars from the golden era of the early 1960s. The facts that this set is very challenging to collect in high grade, and has a rare checklist card which is extremely difficult to find in high grade, give this set a mystique and all-the-greater appeal to serious collectors. 1963 Fleer are never going out of style with advanced collectors. This is one of the premier sets of the 1960s. This set has been stored away in an old-time collection for decades. We have selected three cards to be graded by SGC. Keys: #4 B. Robinson (Nr/Mt), 5 Mays (NM/MT+ 92), 8 Yastrzemski (Ex-Mt+), 32 Santo (Nr/Mt), 41 Drysdale (Nr/Mt), 42 Koufax (NM 84), 43 Wills RC (Ex-Mt), 45 Spahn (Ex-Mt), 46 Adcock (Ex+), 56 Clemente (NM/MT+ 92), 59 Mazeroski (Nr/Mt), 61 Gibson (Nr/Mt+), 64 Cepeda (Nr/Mt), and Checklist (unchecked, Ex). As is common for this set, centering is the only issue on several of these cards. Very crisp, sharp, and attractive complete set of this extremely popular and scarce early 1960s issue. The equivalent SMR value for just the three graded cards (factoring in the two half grades at the lower whole-grade level and not including the 64 ungraded cards!) is $765. Total: 67 cards.
