Hall of Famer Bailey Howell Rookie Card Showing!
Absolutely gorgeous original and authentic five-cent wax pack from one of the most popular and collected vintage sets regardless of sport. Fleer's inaugural 1961 basketball issue is loaded with Hall of Famers and rookie cards despite containing only 66 cards. If not for the two tears along the upper left and lower right edges of the pack, this is a MINT to GEM MT specimen with a technical grade of PSA NM 7. Aside from the Bailey Howell rookie card showing on the back, other possibilities include Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, Bill Russell, Bob Cousy, Elgin Baylor, Hal Greer, K.C. Jones, Sam Jones, Clyde Lovellete, Bob Petit, and Len Wilkens. Guaranteed unopened and unsearched, an incredible pack to open or save as-is!
