1968 Topps Action All-Star Stickers Uncut Sheet
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,972.00
In 1968 Topps issued the "Action All-Star" test sticker set. The sixteen numbered vertical sticker panels in the set are each comprised of three 3.25 x 5.25-inch panels, perforated at the joints for separation. Each three-panel strip features a large image of a star player in the center panel, with smaller pictures of three players on the top and bottom panels. Offered is an uncut proof of the 1968 "Action All-Star" test issue, completely unperforated, and with the proofing color bars along the top. This sheet is highlighted by many stars including Mickey Mantle, Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron, and Willie Mays. Some stars appear more than once. The sheet includes an incredible twenty-three Hall of Famers among the fifty-six players featured (seven players appear on each three-panel strip; each panel has one large center sticker, and three smaller stickers above and below). This sheet is very unusual in that, though it has been prepared as stickers as if for production, in addition to being unperforated it is also missing the black printing process, which is not immediately apparent but which is the reason six player names are missing. The sheet includes eight panels, representing exactly half the complete set. Very minor imperfections including a tiny corner tear in upper right have no impact on overall appearance. This is a very rare and unusual sheet with extraordinary display value. Overall in Excellent condition. The sheet measures 27 x 16.75 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,972.00
