Hunt Auctions has opened its August Internet Auction, which includes some items consigned by a former executive of Fleer Trading Cards including a complete set of 1986-87 Fleer basketball cards in uncut sheet form. The sheet carries a pre-sale estimate of $10,000-$15,000.
Sixty-eight lots in the auction were consigned by Paul Mullan, who served as Chairman and CEO of the Fleer Corporation in addition to having previously been with Donruss in the early to mid-1980s. Mullan headed the group that bought Fleer from the Mustin family in 1989 and oversaw the company going public the following year as well as its acquisition by Marvel Entertainment Group for $265 million in 1992. He then became Co-Chairman and CEO of Del Monte Foods.
The auction has over 1,200 lots in all. It also includes a complete 1984-85 Chicago Bulls Star Company set in the original bag, a 1996-97 Topps Chrome LeBron James Refractor rookie card graded BGS 9, a pair of dual-signed Kobe Bryant shoes and the 2000 New York Mets National Championship ring given to shortstop Rey Ordonez.
Bidding runs through August 19 on the company’s website.
Robert Edward Auctions is also offering an uncut 1986-87 Fleer sheet as well as a full sheet of sticker inserts in its current auction.
