Description: A jaw dropping and altogether important offering. Some cards simply transcend the market, to represent investment pieces more aligned with Americana than Sports. Few figures are as powerful to our culture our most coveted athletes, and those figures which reside at the foundation of the sports we cherish are the most coveted among investors, for obvious reasons. Wilt Chamberlain changed the game, and was largely the first super star of the hard court. He had a personality and ego both on and off the court that largely set the tone of what it meant to be a professional athlete and entertainer. Some records will never be touched. His 1961 Fleer rookie card is a fortunate production, issued during a time when basketball trading cards of any kind were scarce. What transpired was a market painfully limited in supply, forced to grapple with a supple/demand mismatch that could only be described as 'inherently awkward'. The offered PSA 9 is not only a world class offering from this highly limited pool of investment options, it's also one of the worlds absolutely finest examples for the grade. A very strong 9 which holds many attributes of a GEM MINT card and far exceeds what's typical for the issue. A couple exceedingly minor flecks of excess print are all we can see to downgrade. We'd love to see this PSA 9 stacked up against the few PSA 10s in the world, and to allow investors to choose their preferred example in a blind test (!). This card is that nice and an outright steal for the grade assigned. As the trading card market continues to mature it's these issues which set the tone, and for future investment we couldn't be more bullish on the future projections associated with assets of this caliber. We are delighted to offer this world class investment piece to the auction community, free of reserve and going to the highest bidder. Don't miss it. One of over 27,000 cards, lots and sets up for bid in our 9th Auction of 2020. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
