    Description

    1961 Fleer Wilt Chamberlain #8 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. 1961 Fleer Wilt Chamberlain rookie card... in Mint condition. If that information alone isn't enough to encourage you to click that "Place Bid" button we don't know what more you need. Okay, we'll add the fact that the card is a pack-fresh attention grabber with four sharp corners, a layer of shiny gloss which has for the last 50+ years protected inks that are as vibrant today as they were in 1961. Centering is a small margin away from perfection and there are no printing imperfections.

    Chamberlain was a man of contrast and excellence. He could be at times the most beloved and most reviled figure on the professional court. He is the owner of a staggering quantity of all-time NBA records for scoring and rebounding who also refused to live in Philadelphia, choosing to commute from New York and altering the entire team's practice schedule to accommodate him. It seems his surly side didn't come into play when he was behind closed bedroom doors. Wilt Chamberlain did nothing short of dominated opposing defenses with his 7 ft. 1 in. frame. His rookie card is arguably one of the top two most important cards in the basketball hobby and this is an ultra-high grade representation.

    Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. From a total population approaching 1,100, this card is one of a dozen in NM-MT+ with thirty-four rated higher. This is a sharp and crisp example with tremendous visual appeal and physical quality. It is certainly destined for the finest vintage basketball collection.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
