Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Hall of Famer, in his coveted "Rookie Card" appearance. Among more than 1,000 examples recorded in PSA's census reporting, just three specimens have achieved a higher tier. This is a breathtaking example of Jerry West's debut card, presented in simply spectacular condition. The 1961/62 Fleer basketball issue is well-known in the industry for two consistent aspects: the set contains a wealth of rookie cards, and it is notorious for imprecise image centering. The offered card, with its exceptional overall symmetry, defies that latter element of conventional wisdom. The always-desirable rookie card of the Lakers star is seen here at the peak of attractiveness available from its series' often quality-challenged production, and it has also benefited from extraordinarily careful subsequent preservation. A showpiece example, with lustrous gloss, perfectly machined corners and an unimprovable, crystal-clear likeness of the fabled hardcourt star, this collectible will constitute the ultimate upgrade in the finest assembly. Here is a standout West rookie card, in Mint condition.
