They issued their first Basketball set in 1961. The 1961-62 Fleer set includes the rookie cards of many HOF'ers, most notably Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlin, Walt Bellamy, Hal Greer, K.C. Jones, Sam Jones, and Oscar Robertson. They didn't release another set until the landmark 1986-87 Fleer set which includes the rookie card of Michael Jordan.
