The only 1986-87 Fleer basketball unopened case to come to market in the last 20-plus years has now been verified and wrapped by BBCE. Collect Auctions’ Steve Bloedow traveled to BBCE in Schererville, IN over the weekend with the case, which went on the block last week.
Got to view the case in person today.

BBCE also wrapped the 1987-88 and ’88-89 Fleer cases that were also consigned through Fritsch Cards.
