1952 Topps Uncut Advertising Panel

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $2,133

Presented is an extremely rare three-card advertising panel issued by Topps. This is a very significant advertising item relating to the landmark 1952 Topps set. The front features three sample cards, #141 Clint Hartung, #142 Harry Perkowski, and #143 Les Moss. These panels were provided to grocers and candy-store owners to illustrate the format of the set and to generate ordering interest. On the reverse is a special "mailing" sticker advertising for the 1952 Topps series ("New Series! Topps Giant Size Baseball"). The sticker has been addressed. Tremendous rarity, which introduced the second series of the 1952 Topps set to retailers. This is the first 1952 Topps advertising panel of this style (advertising for the second series) that we can ever recall seeing or offering. A couple light creases on card #143 Moss, otherwise overall Excellent condition. Dimensions: 7.75 x 3.75 inches. Reserve $400. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $2,133
