1968 to 1976 Topps Basketball and Football Uncut Sheet Collection (4)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $2,963

Collection of four uncut sheets from three different football and basketball sets produced by Topps, spanning the years 1968 to 1976. This collection consists of the following: 1) 1968 Topps Football Stand Ups: Rarely seen uncut sheet from this insert set. 132-card sheet, arranged in twelve rows of eleven cards, representing six complete sets in uncut sheet form. The offered sheet displays extensive damage in some areas, including missing cards. 113 of the 132 cards are complete; the balance are missing pieces or missing entirely. Two complete 22-card sets are entirely unaffected while the others are in varying stages of completion. The intact portion of the sheet is extremely fragile but displays well with bold colors and light wear along the edges. Though it clearly has condition problems, this is a very interesting and exceedingly rare sheet that could easily be cut down to create high-grade smaller partial sheet sections (including two high-grade complete sets that could be separated in partial sheet form). 2) 1974-1975 Topps Basketball: Partial uncut sheet of 63 cards, arranged in seven rows of nine cards, featuring several Hall of Famers, including Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Nate Archibald, and George Gervin. The sheet has been cut along the top edge leaving a slightly uneven edge. The sheet has wear along the edges, including a tear at the top, and small areas of creasing which affects some of the interior cards. Displays very well despite minor technical flaws. 3-4) 1975-1976 Topps Basketball: Pair of identical 132-card sheets, arranged in twelve rows of eleven cards, including double-printed top and bottom rows. The double-printed rows include Hall of Famers Pete Maravich, Dave Bing, and Connie Hawkins. Overall Excellent appearance with normal wear along the edges and at the corners. Small, scattered wrinkles affect some of the interior cards, but the majority appear Nr/Mt-Mt. Heavy creasing affects the bottom two rows of one sheet while tears affect the bottom row of the other. Bold, bright colors create an impressive visual front and back. This is an attractive collection of Topps uncut sheets from three popular sets, highlighted by one particularly rare football sheet. Total: 4 sheets. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $2,963
