1970 Topps "Way-Out Wheels" Complete Set on Uncut Sheet and Display Box Proof Artwork

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $296

Collection of material from the "Way-Out Wheels" set issued by Topps in 1970, including a complete uncut sheet, display box artwork (preliminary), and nine cards. This collection consists of the following: 1) Complete 36-card uncut sheet representing a complete set. Exceptionally bright, crisp, and clean on front and back. Normal wear along the edges and at the corners along with small areas of wrinkling or light creasing affect many of the cards. An impressive visual is created by the bright illustrations of various cars on the front. Ideal for display. Dimensions: 23 x 29 inches. 2) Original mockup preliminary mixed-media artwork for the ten-cent display box illustrated with bright, bold colors. The artwork is die-cut to the same size it would appear on the display box, approximately 5-7/8 by 10-3/4 inches at the widest points. Affixed to a heavy artist board measuring 8-1/4 by 11-5/8 inches with original wax-paper covering attached. While at a glance this appears to be the actual artwork to the box, comparing it to the issued box leads us to believe this is a preliminary design. Whatever it is, it looks great! Near Mint condition. 3) Nine cards (#5, two 6, 13, 17, 22, 27, 32, and 34) in Ex to Nr/Mt condition. This is a very attractive collection of material from this classic Topps nonsport set. Total: 11 items (one sheet, one display box art/mockup, and nine cards). Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $296
