1961 Fleer #36 Oscar Robertson Rookie PSA 9 MINT
OSCAR ROOKIE!!! The list of superlatives for the legendary Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson is infinite. Along with Russell, Jordan, Chamberlain, Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Bryant and LeBron James, he stands tall as one of the greatest players in NBA history. His lifetime statistics alone solidify his irrefutable iconic standing with the "Big O" averaging an unfathomable 25.7 points, 9.5 assists and 7.5 rebounds per game! For 14 seasons with the Cincinnati Royals and Milwaukee Bucks, he dominated the hardwood floor virtually better than any of his peers, dubbed the "king of the triple-double" whereby he resides as the only basketball player to ever miraculously average a "triple-double" for an entire season! The 12-time All-Star point guard won his only MVP award in 1964, claimed six NBA assist titles and won an NBA championship in 1971 with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Like so many other immortal sports stars, his most coveted cardboard keepsake is his rookie card, with this breathtaking 1961 Fleer PSA 9 offering Robertson's inaugural issue. One of only a handful existing examples at this exalted plateau with just one card grading the perfect 10. The card itself portrays all of the technical attributes and eye appeal of any "Mint 9" example. The seemingly immaculate Oscar Robertson image is ably assisted by sparkling orange/maroon red hues, with the classic illustration exhibiting near-perfect centering between four blinding white borders. Razor-sharp corner tips and near-immaculate surfaces complete this amazing Robertson rookie card that reflects the awe-inspiring aesthetics consistent with any "Mint" subject!
