1961 Fleer Basketball cards were the first major professional basketball release since 1957 Topps and nearly 2/3 of the checklist features Hall of Fame players.

This set is only one of two major sets dedicated to basketball from the 1960s — Topps would release the second set for the 1969-70 season — making these cards a highly sought after product for fans of that era.

This checklist is organized by teams. You can scroll through the entire list or jump to a preferred team by selecting them from the list below. Clicking a link within this checklist will direct you to an affiliate retailer or to relevant eBay listings.
