    Description

    1961 Fleer "Baseball Greats" Complete Set (154) - #5 "All Time Finest" on the PSA Set Registry. This set ranks #5 on the "All Time Finest" list on the PSA Set Registry with a weighted 8.87 GPA. A decade after Topps issued their first cards in their domination of the trading card market, Fleer would have baseball's greatest hitters - Ted Williams - under contract for a set of cards in 1959 and followed up with a set titled "Baseball Greats" in 1960. In 1961, the market saw another set of "Baseball Greats" with a roster that read like the wall of Cooperstown plus a brief list of contemporary players. The 154-card series is still popular and we are pleased to offer one of the finest complete sets on record.

    This presentation is 100% NM-MT or nicer with almost 90% of the set graded MINT with a couple Gem MINT. Both of those cards are "Pop One!" Over sixty cards equal the highest grade known with no superior examples. This set is a great opportunity to add a Mint condition card of baseball legends like Ruth, Cobb, Gehrig and Wagner to your collection.

    Includes: PSA Gem Mint 10: 2 cards, #'s 29 Frick and 47 Jennings; PSA Mint 9: 132 cards, #'s 1 Checklist, 5, 6 Baker, 7, 8 Bender, 9 Bottomley, 12, 13, 14 Cobb, 15 Cochrane, 16 E.
