With the big run-up in Michael Jordan rookies over the past few years, vintage basketball cards from the 1960’s and 1970’s have followed, showing significant price increases.
While I authenticate a lot of Michael Jordan rookies, I’ve started to get a lot of requests from one set in particular- 1961 Fleer Basketball. I love this set, it features some of the most valuable basketball cards in the hobby and in my mind is one of the best designs of all basketball card sets.
However, with the popularity, comes more counterfeits and reprints, with unsuspecting collectors getting scammed out of thousands of dollars.
Thus, I want to provide a new guide for the 1961 Fleer Basketball Set. This should be everything you need to know to help identify a real card from a fake.
If you have any ’61 Fleer cards you’d like me to authenticate, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.orgRead More...
