    1961 Fleer Basketball Uncut Sheet - The Complete 66-Card Set! To call this series "important" seems like a tremendous understatement. It is perhaps the most collectible basketball card issue in the hobby, and one of the most popular in any sport. The '61 Fleer set continues to impress over four decades later as it represents the only extended nationally circulated promotion devoted to the sport between the years 1957 and 1969. One of the reasons that the demand for this elusive set remains so high is the fact that these colorful cards were produced in low populations, and found among the 66-card roster are the rookie debuts of basketball Hall of Famers Len Wilkins, Hal Greer, Elgin Baylor, Casey Jones, Oscar Robertson, Jerry West and, of course, Wilt Chamberlain, plus Bob Cousy, Bill Russell, Dolph Schayes and others. Most have a second "In Action" card that appear within the closing numbers.

    What makes this presentation of such significance is the fact it is a complete production sheet with all 66 cards. The blank-backed sheet measures 29x33". The front displays in glorious color. Light creasing and surface scuffs affect the cards on the outer columns and a handful of others, and three small pieces of tape remain on verso, the remnants of an earlier framing job. Russell, West and Chamberlin cards are totally unaffected. To the extent of our research, this is the first time an uncut sheet of '61 Fleer Basketball cards has ever been offered before and it transcends to such a rarity level that the set in this format could be labeled unique.
