Goudey Sport Kings basketball card of Ed Wachter

The first basketball cards were issued in 1948. They were not a success. Further issues were attempted in the late 1950s and during the 1960s, again, without success. It was not until 1986 that the “Fleer Set”, featuring the Michael Jordan rookie card, became poplar. The popularity of baseball cards has continued to rise and they are now very collectable.
