1959 Topps Uncut Sheet (132 cards) with 18 Hall of Famers Including Two Hank Aaron

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $10,073

Original 1959 Topps uncut final production sheet from this popular set, containing a total of 132 cards arranged in eleven rows of twelve cards. The sheet features sixty-six different double-printed cards from the fifth and sixth series and is highlighted by nine cards featuring Hall of Famers, each of which appears twice. The nine Hall of Fame cards are #380 Hank Aaron, 383 Words of Wisdom (Casey Stengel/Don Larsen), 387 Don Drysdale, 390 Orlando Cepeda, 408 Keystone Combo (Nellie Fox/Luis Aparicio), 415 Bill Mazeroski, 430 Whitey Ford, 435 Frank Robinson, and 439 Brooks Robinson. The sheet presents with strong visual appeal, maintaining the same vibrant colors as it did fifty-five years ago. It does, however, display several technical flaws throughout, including creasing in areas, staining and wear along the edges, and a small hole in one of the perimeter cards. All of these flaws are commonly found in sheets due to their large size. Despite these faults, it is perfect for framing and display, which would naturally minimize the flaws and present the sheet as Excellent in appearance. The offered sheet would make an outstanding companion piece to any 1959 Topps complete set or a worthy addition to any advanced uncut-sheet collection. Dimensions: 28 x 42.25 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $10,073
