1962 Topps High Number Uncut Proof Sheet Collection (3)

Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $822.50

Three 1962 Topps scarce high number proof sheets (#523-590) - two of the sheets feature thirty-three cards, including Curt Flood (one of the sheets is missing the final black-ink printing process, making each card on the sheet appear to be an unusual and subtle printing variation), and the third sheet has forty-four cards, including Willie McCovey and Bob Gibson. 1962 Topps proof sheets are easily distinguished from production sheets by their blank-backs and the fact they have only thirty-three or forty-four cards per sheet (as opposed to 132 cards for production sheets), with large margin areas and color proofing bars. A small find of these 1962 Topps proof sheets turned up many years ago, but these sheets have long ago disappeared into collections and are rarely seen today. This is a very attractive collection of three full proof sheets with color bars along the bottom. All three sheets have been mounted to foam boards for framing, which in no way impacts the display value or strong overall Excellent or better appearance of each sheet, and with all but a few cards appearing essentially in Mint condition. Dimensions: each 29 x 21 inches. Total: 3 sheets. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $822.50
