    1961 Fleer Bill Russell #38 PSA Mint 9. Bill Russell was the cornerstone of the Boston Celtics' dynasty of the 1960's. An uncanny shot blocker, Russell revolutionized NBA defensive concepts. A consummate team player, his greatest accomplishment was bringing the storied Celtics 11 championships in his 13 seasons. His individual accomplishments include five NBA Most Valuable Player awards and a dozen All-Star game appearances. The towering center amassed 21,620 career rebounds, an average of 22.5 per game and led the league in rebounding four times.

    Offered is one of the finest examples on record of what is just his second appearance on a trading card from the 1961 Fleer Basketball series. An all-too common experience by those who pursue this set is cards that are cut off center. We cannot imagine how this card was spared from that fate as centering is a perfect as you'll hope to find. Combine the four high quality corners and vibrant inks and you have a PSA Mint 9 beauty fit for a HoF legend. Of the over 650 Russell cards submitted to PSA, this is one of twenty-seven in Mint with none graded higher! Where are my Celtics fanatics?
