1952 Topps Uncut Final Production Sheet (25 Cards)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,998

1952 Topps are extremely rare to find in uncut sheets, far more so than virtually any card issue of the era. No full 100-card production sheets are known to exist, though many years ago (in the late 1970s) a small number (fewer than ten) of sheet quadrants was discovered. Each sheet from this small but very exciting find (of which this sheet no doubt originates) was a 25-card sheet section, representing one-quarter of what is believed to be a full production sheet. We would say that these few 25-card 1952 Topps sheets have disappeared from the marketplace, but the fact is there were so few of them that they were never really seen in the marketplace. Over the years, literally just a few have resurfaced. Presented is a very rarely seen uncut production sheet of twenty-five cards from the 1952 Topps series. The sheet includes the following cards: #36 Hodges, 37 Snider, 38, 39, 40, 56, 57 Lopat, 58, 59 Roberts, 60, 66 Roe (2), 67 Reynolds (2), 68 (2), 69 (2), 70 (2), 76 Stanky, 77, 78, 79 Staley, and 80 Wehmeier. Various minor imperfections include some minor moisture stains (predominately in the upper and lower right corners, and lower left edge) and some minor soiling, but the sheet has an extremely impressive overall Excellent appearance when hung on the wall. The reverse is virtually flawless with just a very light moisture stain. This is a significant and substantial rarity, and one of only several 1952 Topps sheets we have ever seen offered. The sheet measures 13 x 18.5 inches, and is beautifully framed (with double-sided Plexiglas to allow viewing of the reverse) to total dimensions of 19 x 24.75 inches. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,998
