Two 1964 Topps Double Uncut Sheets Including Mantle (2)
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $4,640.00
Two 1964 Topps double ("Jumbo") uncut sheets, with 264 cards on each sheet, featuring many stars and Hall of Famers. One is a full production sheet with printed backs, and the other is a blank-backed proof sheet. 1) The 1964 Topps "double full production sheet" features 264 cards from the second series (#110-196) and includes #150 Willie Mays, 155 Duke Snider, 120 Don Drysdale, 125 Pete Rose, etc. Because this is a "double sheet," each card appears twice. 2) The second 1964 Topps "double sheet" features 264 cards from the first series (#1-109). This blank-backed proof sheet also features many stars including #21 Yogi Berra, 35 Eddie Mathews, 29 Lou Brock, 50 Mickey Mantle, 55 Ernie Banks, etc. Once again, each card, including all stars appears on the sheet twice (the extra cards on these sheets are "double-prints"), as these sheets are each the equivalent of two 132-card sheets. These 264-card "Jumbo" sheets each measure 43 x 57 inches. Because of their large size, they are susceptible to minor imperfections. Each sheet has various minor condition flaws such as creases and edge wear. The blank-backed sheet has a tear (repaired with tape on reverse) affecting two cards, and the sheet with printed backs has a tear in the lower left corner affecting two cards. These sheets are very bright, clean, and extremely impressive, and they could easily be cut down into four standard 132-card sheets. Difficult to grade as they display so beautifully as most cards are Nr/Mt; overall we grade these Vg-Ex. Total 2 sheets. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $4,640.00
