The Daily: 1961-62 Fleer Wilt Chamberlain Rookie Card
The Card: 1961-62 Fleer Wilt Chamberlain RC #8
On August 21, 1936, one of the NBA’s legends was born, Wilt Chamberlain. Whether he’s basketball’s greatest of all-time depends on who you talk to, but he’s certainly part of any serious conversation.
Chamberlain’s legend is a numbers game. In 1962, he became the first player in NBA history to score 100 points or more in a single game, something that hasn’t happened since. That season, he set another all-time record for points per game with 50.4. That was one of Chamberlain’s seven scoring titles.
Other accomplishments include a pair of NBA Championships, four MVP Awards, 13 All-Star Games and 11 rebounding titles.
For those looking for something significantly cheaper, Chamberlain has a second card on the checklist (#47) that’s a highlight-style one with the center going up for a dunk.
