The 1963 Fleer Complete Baseball Card Set consists of 66 player cards and a checklist.  Both the checklist and #46 Joe Adcock are considered Short-Prints. Cards numbered 1 - 66 when produced during the first print run During the second printing, the checklist was substituted for the #46 Adcock card on the print sheet, so both cards are in shorter supply than the rest of the cards in the set.

The set was an attempt by Fleer to break into the bubble gum baseball card market.  In an effort to bypass the confections monopoly that Topps owned on baseball cards, Fleer included a cookie in each pack of cards - instead of bubble gum. Fleer was forced to give the cookie a very low sugar content for the same reason, resulting in a tasteless uneatable cookie.  Topps resorted to quick legal action and the 1963 Fleer set was limited to a single series.

The 1963 Fleer Baseball Card set is popular among collectors, because of all the stars that it contains.  It is also the only set in which you can get a card of 1962 N.L. MVP Maury Wills.  The Fleer cards were also issued in much smaller numbers than the 1963 Topps and have kept a nice value over the years.
