Collector score: ***** (6 Stars)

In an attempt to circumvent Topps exclusive rights to baseball cards, Fleer issued their 1963 baseball cards with cookies instead of gum. The 1963 Fleer baseball card issue was intended to be a much larger set issued in multiple series but Topps sued Fleer after the first series was released stopping further production. Fleer pulled the set from the market and canceled plans for the remaining series leaving this very popular set at just 66 cards plus one unnumbered checklist. But what a 66 cards! The 63 Fleer Cards are attractive and feature an extremely high percentage of stars: Brooks Robinson, Willie Mays, Carl Yastrzemski, Sandy Koufax, Roberto Clemente, Don Drysdale and Warren Spahn. The set also included 2 very scarce short prints, Joe Adcock and the unnumbered checklist.
The most interesting card is the Maury Wills Rookie card. Even though Wills started his career with the Dodgers in 1959 and became a superstar, his 63 Fleer card is considered his rookie card. In 1959, 1960 and 1961, Topps apparently did not consider Wills worthy enough to have a card!

Not many were printed, and finding cards in mint condition is nearly impossible.

About card hog

I've been collecting baseball cards since 1965, when I would chew on them instead of the horrible bubble gum inside. All of these cards are from my private collection.
