1961-62 Fleer Basketball Cards
The 1961-62 Fleer Basketball Set is known for including the first mainstream basketball cards of many basketball all-time greats such as Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robinson and Jerry West. The 1961-62 was the only major basketball set issued by Fleer until the 1986-87 season. The 1961-62 Fleer set featured cards of 44 different players and consisted of 66 cards in total, thus cards 44-66 were action shots of players pictured elsewhere in the set.
Key rookie cards for this set include: #8 Wilt Chamberlain, #16 Hal Greer, #23 Sam Jones, #36 Oscar Robertson, #44 Lenny Wilkins and #45 Paul Arizin.
