From our incredible find in New Mexico, this is without a doubt, even harder to find than 1986/87 Fleer Basketball! The initial reaction to 1986/87 Fleer Basketball was lukewarm, and the natural reaction by Fleer was to cut production for its follow-up set. The proof is out there - how often do you see 1987/88 Fleer unopened packs and boxes available in relation to its earlier counterpart?
While we believe the 1986/87 Fleer Basketball Wax Case we bought in this same deal may be one of the few remaining in existence, we feel even more strongly about this 1987/88 Fleer Basketball Wax case possibly being the last one out there!
12 Boxes Per Case, 36 packs per box; 12 cards, one sticker
Even though the rookie crop is not as impressive as the 1986/87 year (Ron Harper, Detlef Schrempf, Otis Thorpe, Brad Daugherty, Nate McMillan, Terry Porter, A.C. Green, Dale Ellis), the true value which lies in this product is production run. Originally, 1986/87 Fleer Basketball did not receive acceptance by collectors; baseball was still king and basketball was a much smaller market. This forced Fleer to cut their production dramatically for the 1987/88 product. The proof is out there; how often do you see anything from 1987/88 Fleer Basketball in comparison to 1986/87?
