Available on eBay right now and closing on November 10 is the complete sets of the first four Fleer basketball products including a graded 10 Michael Jordan rookie card and all stickers.
The sets are:
- 1985/86 Fleer plus stickers
- 1986/87 Fleer plus stickers
- 1988/89 Fleer plus stickers
- 1989/90 Fleer plus stickers
These sets are on offer by eBay ‘Top-rated Seller’ and long time collectormo40dd. According to the listing, mo40dd has personally compiled the sets and taken judicious care of these historic basketball cards. These sets would make an instant impact on any collectors’ collection.
Widely considered the best basketball card set in history, the 1985/86 Fleer complete set will be the draw card in this listing and generate a lot of interest. Especially as it is described as a single owner collection with very minimal exposure to any sort of handling – these sorts of listings do not appear on eBay often!
Just a few of the hot cards in these sets:
- Graded 10 Michael Jordan rookie card
- Second year Michael Jordan card
- Charles Barkley rookie card
- Akeem (Hakeem) Olajuwon rookie card
- Patrick Ewing rookie card
- Clyde Drexler rookie card
- Isiah Thomas rookie card
- Magic Johnson cards
- Larry Bird cards
- Julius Erving cards
- Scottie Pippen rookie card
- Dennis Rodman rookie card
- John Stockton rookie card
- Jordan’s famous free throw line dunk all star card
Unfortunately the only graded card is the Michael Jordan rookie card and the photos used in the listing are not good. So determining the condition of the bulk of the lot will involve direct queries with the seller and the trade off against the level of reputation you feel the seller has.
This excellent collection of NBA history will no doubt not sell cheap!
Update (12 November): these sets sold for $2750.
