    Description

    1961 Fleer Wilt Chamberlain #8 SGC 96 Mint 9. At a time when above-the-rim play was much more of an anomaly than it is in today's game, Wilt Chamberlain dominated opposing defenses with his 7 ft 1 in frame. Arguably one of the most important cards in not just the '61 Fleer series but the entire basketball card hobby. In terms of quality, this one is about as sweet as a one-hundred point game. This unquestionably high grade has been graded SGC 96 Mint 9. Simply brilliant color, gloss and registration. Stark white borders with corner tips and edges that suggests a newly-opened wax pack as this card seems to have never been touched in the last half century. Graphics are perfectly centered! Exceptionally bright in its visual appeal and physical quality. Destined for the finest vintage basketball collection. One of five at the 96 Mint 9 level with none grading higher.
