    Description

    1961 Fleer "Baseball Greats" Complete Set (154) - Lionel Carter Collection. Lionel Carter Collection pedigree. The 1961 Fleer "Baseball Greats" series has remained a hobby favorite. Other sets pieced together may attain a higher GPA but for visual appeal few collectors had the eye that Lionel Carter did. This is one impressive offering made all the more appealing coming from a hobby "hall of famer" himself. The roster includes all-time greats like Cobb, Gehrig, Ruth, Mathewson, Johnson, Honus Wagner and Ted Williams as well as the strong supporting cast of athletes who are all too often overlooked. A total of 70 cards have been graded by SGC. Highlights include: Graded Cards - SGC 98 GEM MINT 10: 6 cards, #'s 16 Collins, 22, 25 Feller, 26, 58 and 70; SGC 96 MINT 9: 48 cards, #'s 4 Anson, 6 Baker, 7, 9, 10 Bresnahan, 11 Brown, 12, 13, 14 Cobb, 15 Cochrane, 18 Comiskey, 20, 21, 27, 28 Foxx, 30, 31 Gehrig, 32, 34 Gomez, 35, 36, 40, 41, 43 Hornsby, 44, 50 Kiner, 51, 52, 56, 59 Mathewson, 60, 62, 66, 67, 68 Ott, 71, 72, 74, 75 Ruth, 76, 81, 82, 83, 86 Wheat, 101, 105, 111 and 141; SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5: 9 cards, #'s 3, 24, 42, 49 Johnson, 53 Landis, 57, 65, 73 and 84; SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 6 cards, #'s 23, 78, 79 Speaker, 96, 99 and 117; SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 1 card, #120 Lajoie.
