Original 1975 Topps baseball uncut final production sheet consisting of 132 cards with fully printed reverses, highlighted by the key rookie cards of Hall of Famers George Brett and Robin Yount. The sheet is arranged in twelve rows of eleven cards. The nine Hall of Famers featured on the sheet are Aaron HL, Bench, Blyleven, Brett RC, Fingers, Gibson, Morgan, B. Robinson, and Yount RC. Additional key cards included are Garvey and Munson. Grading of sheets has always posed a problem as we naturally tend to grade a sheet as if it were a "big card" when really a grade does not capture the condition or visual appeal of a sheet (all the more so as sheets tend to be large). That is certainly the case here. Technically, the sheet is in Good condition due to creases affecting the interior cards (of which both Brett and Yount are unaffected), several edge nicks, and light staining on the lower left and right edges. If framed and hung on a wall, many of these flaws would be mitigated and it would project an outstanding overall Excellent appearance! The sheet measures approximately 28-1/2 x 43 inches. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
