1959 to 1963 Fleer Complete Set Collection (4 sets, 380 cards)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,700

Collection of four complete sets issued by Fleer between 1959 and 1963. These early Fleer sets are far scarcer than Topps sets of this same era, and the excellent value they offer collectors is just beginning to be widely appreciated. Consigned from an old-time collection. We have selected three cards to be graded by SGC. This collection consists of the following: 1) 1959 Ted Williams Complete Set (80 cards): 82% Nr/Mt or better and 18% Ex to Ex-Mt (including a few Vg to Vg-Ex). Keys: #1 Early Years (Ex), 2 Williams/Ruth (Ex-Mt), 11 Williams/Foxx (Ex-Mt+), 17 Ted Hit .400 (Nr/Mt), 39 Williams/Cronin/E. Collins (Ex), 63 All-Star Record (Nr/Mt), 67 Williams/Snead (Vg-Ex), 68 Ted Signs (NM+ 86), 70 Williams/Thorpe (EX/NM 80), 75 Williams/Ruth/Collins (Ex-Mt+), and 80 Ted's Goals (Ex-Mt+). 2) 1960 Baseball Greats Set (79 cards): 57% Ex to Ex-Mt and 43% Vg to Vg-Ex (including a few Gd). Keys: #3 Ruth (Ex+), 28 Gehrig (Vg), 42 Cobb (Vg+), and 72 T. Williams (Ex+). 3) 1961-1962 Baseball Greats Set (154 cards): 64% Ex to Ex-Mt, 18% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 18% lesser. Keys: #1 Baker/Cobb/Wheat (Vg-Ex), 14 Cobb (Ex+), 31 Gehrig (Vg-Ex), 75 Ruth (Fr), 150 Wagner (Ex), and 152 T. Williams (Vg-Ex+). 4) 1963 Fleer Complete Set (67 cards): 58% Ex to Ex-Mt, 14% Vg-Ex, and 28% lesser. Keys: #4 B. Robinson (Gd), 5 Mays (Ex+), 8 Yastrzemski (Ex-Mt), 41 Drysdale (Ex+), 42 Koufax (NM/MT 88), 43 Wills RC (Gd/Vg), 45 Spahn (Vg), 46 Adcock SP (Ex), 56 Clemente (Ex), 61 Gibson (Ex+), and Checklist (no left border, otherwise Nr/Mt). The early Fleer sets are among the most interesting and overlooked sets of the era, and this is an extremely attractive collection, loaded with highlights. The equivalent SMR value for just the three graded cards (factoring in the one half-grade at the lower whole-grade level) is $790. Total: 4 sets, 380 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,700
