1963 Fleer Complete Set (66) Plus 125 Duplicates

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,800

Presented is a sizable collection of 191 cards from the 1963 Fleer series, comprised of a complete 66-card set (no checklist) plus 125 duplicates, including twenty-seven Hall of Famers. The 1963 Fleer set is considered by many to be among the most attractive and 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 fact that this set is very challenging to collect in high grade gives it 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. 1) Complete Set (66 cards): No checklist. Condition is 24% Nr/Mt (including a few better), 60% Ex to Ex-Mt, and 16% Vg to Vg-Ex. Keys: #4 B.
