1971 Topps Uncut Partial Sheet (66 cards)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,920

Original 1971 Topps uncut final production sheet of 66 cards, with printed reverses. All cards on this sheet are from the first series (#1-132). This partial sheet represents half of a complete 132-card sheet, on which cards would normally be double printed. A seventh row of eleven cards is present at top (technically making this a 77-card sheet), but we have not accounted for them because the tops of all the cards are cut off. Hall of Famers and stars include Reggie Jackson, Phil Niekro, Pete Rose, Bert Blyleven (rookie), Brooks Robinson, Bill Mazeroski, and Thurman Munson. Grading of sheets has always posed a problem as we naturally tend to grade a sheet as if it were a "big card" when really a grade does not capture the condition or visual appeal of a sheet (all the more so as sheets tend to be large). That is certainly the case here. Technically in Very Good condition due to several creases affecting some of the interior cards, but if framed and hung on a wall it would project a spectacular Excellent or better appearance. The sheet measures 24-1/2 x 28-3/8 inches.  Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,920
