1966 Topps Batman "Blue Bat" Series B Uncut Sheet (132 cards)
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,778
Complete 132-card uncut final production sheet from the 1966 Topps Batman "Blue Bat" Series B set. Batman took the world by storm in 1966 with the introduction of the wildly popular Batman television series. Topps joined the bandwagon with several series of card sets devoted to the Caped Crusader. This classic 1960s card set featured brilliantly illustrated scenes of Batman and Robin in action as they protected Gotham City. This sheet contains a total of 132 cards arranged in eleven rows of twelve cards, which represents a triple-printed run of the 44-card set. An impressive visual is created with all of the cards printed on front. The reverse features white text descriptions printed on a blue Batman-logo background. This is an ideal sheet for display as it maintains the same vivid colors as intended more than forty-five years ago. Some condition flaws are visible as a result of storage throughout the years, including minor edge tears and wear at the corners due to its large size. Wrinkling and creasing affects the four right columns along with water damage on front and back, which does not compromise the visual appeal and bold colors on the front but has caused staining and fading to the reverse. The remaining eighty-eight cards are almost entirely wrinkle free and present Near Mint. Despite these flaws, this is still an extremely attractive display sheet from one of the most popular of all Topps nonsport issues. Rare and ideal for framing and display. Dimensions: 28 x 43 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,778
