Presented is a high-grade near-complete set (minus one) of 1986-1987 Fleer basketball plus a near-complete (minus one) stickers set. Missing only #57 Jordan (rookie) and #8 Jordan Sticker for completion. This set marks the first basketball set produced by Fleer since 1961. Fleer stopped producing basketball cards after 1961 while its powerhouse competitor Topps continued to rule the basketball-card market through the late 1960s until the mid-1980s. This set is loaded with superstars and rookie cards of Hall of Famers, highlighted with the rookie cards of Charles Barkley, Karl Malone, and Akeem Olajuwon. This set exhibits bright colors and an overall pack-fresh quality. Three cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA. The condition of the base set is 29% Nr/Mt-Mt (including a couple Mint), 47% Nr/Mt, and 24% Ex to Ex-Mt (including 5% slightly lesser). Keys: #1 Abdul-Jabbar (Nr/Mt+), 7 Barkley RC (Vg/Vg-Ex), 9 Bird (Nr/Mt-Mt), 26 Drexler RC (Nr/Mt-Mt), 27 Dumars RC (Nr/Mt), 31 Erving (NM-MT 8), 32 Ewing RC (Ex-Mt), 53 Johnson (NM-MT 8), 68 K. Malone RC (NM-MT 8), 77 Mullin RC (Nr/Mt), 82 Olajuwon RC (70/30 T/B, otherwise Nr/Mt), 109 Thomas RC (Nr/Mt-Mt), 121 D. Wilkins RC (Ex-Mt), 131 Worthy RC (Ex-Mt+), 132 Checklist (Ex). The condition of the "Stickers" set (without reference to wax on the reverses) is Ex-Mt to Nr/Mt overall. This is a superb near-complete master set (minus two) of this modern classic basketball issue loaded with highlights. Total: 141 cards. Reserve $10.
