    1986 Fleer Karl Malone #68 PSA Gem Mint 10. Offered is the rookie card of Karl Malone, known as "the Mailman" - because he delivered - year after year. He played 19 years, all with the Utah Jazz, except his final season, with the Los Angeles Lakers. Malone was a 6'9" power forward, and he was tough. For 1,412 games Malone played on the same team as John Stockton, the 6'0" Utah point guard. It is the most games two players have ever played together. In fact, out of a possible 1,444 games Malone could have played while on the Jazz with Stockton, Karl missed only 10. Hall of Famer Malone has the second highest career point total in history (36,928), trailing only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Malone was a 14-time All-Star, a 14-time All-NBA player, a 4-time All-Defensive Team member, and a 2-time MVP.

    The signature play for Malone was working pick-and-rolls with Stockton. It was very difficult for two opposing defenders to stop all the options that Malone and Stockton utilized off this basic two-man game, and if a third defender joined the mix, Stockton or Malone would find an open man for a basket. Malone also won two Gold Medals as a member of the 1992 and '96 Olympic squads. He never won an NBA title, but Malone's team made the Finals three times.

    This Fleer issue filled a four-year void when there were no major national basketball cards issued. So, the set is full of other rookie cards: Jordan, Barkley, Olajuwon, Wilkins, Thomas, Drexler, Worthy, etc. The standard-size cards have a unique red, white, and blue border. The reverse side is also in the same colors: blue writing on a red-and-white surface. Graded PSA Gem Mint 10.
