    Description

    1961 Fleer Oscar Robertson #36 PSA Mint 9 - Only One Higher. Oscar Robertson was an immensely talented guard who is considered by many to be the greatest athlete in that position. While an enormous amount of credit for the early success of the Milwaukee Bucks franchise belongs to young Lew Alcindor, it was Big O, the superstar point guard acquired from the Cincinnati Royals, who proved to be the final piece to the Championship puzzle upon his arrival in Milwaukee in 1970. Now forever enshrined with the NBA career scoring leader in both the Basketball Hall of Fame and the NBA Fifty Greatest Players of All-Time list. As a member of the 1960 US Olympic team, Robertson joined future HoFers Walt Bellamy, Jerry Lucas, and Jerry West to form what could be considered one of the greatest basketball teams to take the court. "Big O" would join Jerry Lucas as co-leading scorers in Rome before seamlessly transitioning from the Games to the NBA, averaging 30.5 points, 10.1 rebounds and 9.7 assists per game to run away with Rookie of the Year honors. Even at the top of the world, there was nowhere to go but up.

    Offered is his rookie card debut from the Fleer basketball edition of 1961. Issued when basketball was starting to be noticed by the American public, this issue was perfectly times and is the only card promotion which circulated between the 1957 and 1969 Topps promotions.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. One of fourteen in Mint with one rated higher. The offered card is for the basketball fan who won't settle for anything less than the finest for their collection. Four sharp corners, perfect centering, fresh gloss and problem free surfaces are all present which is to be expected for a card at this grade level. A big boost for the '61 Fleer Basketball Registry member.
