    1961 Fleer Bailey Howell #20 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Pop Two. Bailey Howell stood 6' 7" but in the state of Mississippi he is ten feet tall. Powell still holds records for Mississippi State University although he only played for three years. He still holds the record for single-game points scored, career scoring average, single-season and career free throws made, single-season and career free throws attempted, single-game free throw percentage, single-game rebounds, single-season rebounds, career rebounds, and single-season and career rebounding average. He is admired both on and off the court. NBA success followed where Powell enjoyed as 12-year career playing for the Detroit Pistons, Baltimore Bullets, Boston Celtics, and Philadelphia 76ers. Upon retirement, the six-time All-Star was part of two championships and had racked up 17,500 points. He was elected into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1997. In 2009 his jersey (#52) was retired by Mississippi State - a first for any MSU basketball player.
    Offered is one of the finest examples of his 1961 Fleer rookie card noted on the PSA census. This and just one other have earned PSA Gem MT 10 status, neither to be improved upon. It takes no time at all to realize a finer copy could not exist.
