1961 Topps First Series Uncut Sheet with #2 Roger Maris
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,185.00
1961 Topps production uncut sheet of 66 cards. Hall of Famers and stars include #2 Roger Maris, 10 Brooks Robinson, 30 Nellie Fox, 44 AL HR Ldrs (Mantle), 80 Harmon Killebrew, 88 Richie Ashburn, and 89 Billy Martin. All cards on this sheet are from the first series (#1-109). This is a final production sheet with fully printed backs. This 66-card sheet is technically defined as a partial sheet, as 1961 Topps were printed in 132-card production sheets. Six eleven-card rows at the top have long ago been neatly cut away, but the sheet certainly has the presence of a full-sheet display. This extremely attractive partial uncut sheet presents a very rare and relatively affordable alternative to a complete 132-card 1961 Topps sheet (if one were to be available). Technically in modest grade due to various minor faults, including a few creases, a few small tears, nail holes in the corners, and surface abrasions, but it is still a significant rarity and the sheet displays beautifully. The sheet measures 28 x 21-5/8 inches. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,185.00
