Joy of a Completed Page - Ludicrous Edition

I haven't done one of these in a while and I'm hopelessly behind on my self-imposed posting schedule, so let's do this. Submitted for your approval: A complete page of 1986-1987 Fleer Basketball.


Ooooooooooh yes it is.

holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii-

Not keeping that particular card in a 9 pocket sheet for obvious reasons. Here's the back for gits and shiggles.

This is in celebration of making a trade for my first additions to this set in nearly 20 years. I got so giddy I made a wantlist.

34 Sleepy Floyd
35 Lloyd Free
36 George Gervin
37 Artis Gilmore

Ya, I need 15 4 cards to complete the '86-87 Fleer set and the biggest name is George Gervin. I've got over 90 doubles from this set so if there is anyone out there who happens to have any of these I'll be happy to trade you at least two-for-one for any of these suckers. I got all the ones I have from about half a box at 35 cents a pack from McCrory's at Northlake mall in 1987. While I didn't score all the rookies, I traded my surplus of Barkleys and Ewings to knock out the biggies that I didn't have. I think it's about time to put this sucka to bed. If you have no '87s to trade, I'd also appreciate a link to someplace online I could pick 'em up cheap.

Aww what the heck, let's put up the '87-88 Wantlist too while I'm at it.

Grertings. I have an 86 Sikma, a couple actually as he played college ball in the town I call home. Nothing needed in return. I enjoy your posts. You can email me your adress if you wish or post here. Thanks Jim Harcar harcarrules@hotmail.com

this is beautiful. I'm 50 cards out of a complete 1986 Fleer set, not including stickers. Most of the shows I go to have them for sale for a buck or two a piece, I can keep an eye out for you.

I'm pretty sure my dad has the 1987 set (and many extras) at home, I'll check that out for you.

In the mean time, I'll give you my kidney/soul combination for the Jordan. ;)

Yep, still working on the set, shoot me an e-mail at dayf13 at gmail and let me know what you want in return. I still have a pile of doubles myself
