    1961 Fleer Wilt Chamberlain #8 PSA NM 7. "Nobody loves Goliath," said Wilt Chamberlain about one of his nicknames, and it's true that at 7'1" and 250-300 pounds, Hall of Famer Chamberlain was almost always the largest man on the floor - but what's also true is that Wilt was an exceptional athlete. Presented is Wilt's rookie card. He started his professional career with the Philadelphia Warriors in 1959-60, and the center was the Rookie of the Year, averaging 37.6 PPG. The next season he upped his average to 38.4. Then speculation abounded that he could be the first NBA player to average 40 PPG in 1961-62. Didn't happen. He averaged 50.4 PPG. Chamberlain liked to do things in a big way, and on March 2nd that year he scored an all-time pro record 100 points in a game against the New York Knicks at Hershey, Pa, an occasional Warriors' home venue. The 1961 Fleer issue was the first nationally distributed hoop set in four years, and so it features many rookie cards, including other HOF players such as: Robertson, West, and Len Wilkins. Graded PSA NM 7.
