Description:
1959 Fleer Three Stooges Complete Master Set (99) - #2 on the PSA Set Registry. They elevated slapstick to an art form, and bore the responsibility for thousands of emergency room visits from kids in fond imitation of their eye-gouging, hair-ripping, slap-happy antics. For a quarter century the trio was the definitive physical comedy act, and their cult following remains intact over a half century after their official dissolution. Collectors swarm for movie posters and lobby cards relating to their silver screen appearances, and the trend continues in the trading card market, for which they supplied a few different entries. Here we present the most coveted issue from the genre, a carefully curated assembly that ranks as the silver medalist on the "All-Time Finest" list of the PSA Set Registry.

The GPA is 8.72 (NM/MT+); the basic set is 100% NM/MT or better. Seventy-six cards, or just under 80%, of the basic set is a blazing "Mint 9." Card #'s 1, 2 and 3, which feature portraits of our favorite Stooges, are very high end NM-MT examples. The presentation includes: PSA MINT 9: 76 cards, #'s 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17, 19, 20, 21, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 32, 34, 37, 38, 40, 42, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 83, 84, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 94 and 95; PSA NM-MT+ 8.5: 9 cards, #'s 18, 31, 35, 36, 41, 43, 64, 93 and 96; PSA NM-MT 8: 11 cards, #'s 1 Curly, 2 Moe, 3 Larry, 5, 16, 22, 33, 39, 54, 82 and 85. The very rare checklist back variations grade as follows - #'s 16 (PSA VG-EX+ 4.5), 63 (PSA EX 5) and 64 (PSA VG-EX 4).
