Description


Graded by PSA GEM MINT 10. Only one of three graded at this tier. After three seasons of encouraging success in the baseball card industry with no traditional card sets, Fleer intrepidly moved into the contemporary monopoly claimed by Topps. It was 1963, and the impudent Fleer prowled for a share of the bigger pie in releasing a 66-card series featuring current Major League stars. (This group was actually identified as their "First Series," intimating that successive card numbers were in store.) Topps, of course, was not about to abide the presence of these upstarts, and a 'cease and desist' order was promptly effected through litigation. With their dubious little cherry-cookies, Fleer was compelled to take down their tent. During the interim, however, and among those 66 "FIRST SERIES" subjects, there appeared one of the top players in the game, #43 Sandy Koufax. This example, in particular, was claimed from its crumbly packaging to survive the ages and merit the utmost evaluation by PSA as GEM MINT, complete with snow white border, a superb image, and a bright green reverse border. PSA GEM MINT 10 condition.
