    Description

    1961 Fleer Jerry West #43 SGC 96 Mint 9 - Pop One, None Higher! Jerry West, aka "Mr. Clutch," was accustomed to winning as he did it a lot. The co-captain of America's Olympic gold medal-winning team had a storied professional career with the LA Lakers that spanned fourteen seasons. With a shot that was all water, West was on the All-Star Team every year he played in the NBA. At West Virginia, he lead them to the 1959 NCAA championship, before serving as co-captain (with Oscar Robertson) of the 1960 U.S. Olympic gold medal team in Rome. Despite his numerous records that earned him Hall of Fame membership, being selected to the All-NBA First Team ten times (1962-67, 1970-73), the All-Defensive Team four times (1970-73), the NBA 35th Anniversary Team (1980), and the NBA 50th Anniversary Team (1996), perhaps nothing conveys the honor and respect held for Jerry West by those involved with the game of basketball than the use of his silhouette as the NBA logo. It's difficult to imagine a greater honor than having one's image used as a symbol of the game.

    Graded SGC Mint 9. As any collector of the 1961 Fleer basketball set can tell you, finding a high-grade example is akin to finding the proverbial needle in a haystack. SGC has graded over 200 examples of this Jerry West card and this is the first and only card to rate "Mint 9" with none ranked higher. Card displays flawless surfaces, corners and edges. An immaculate card.
