Extremely rare 1971 Topps final production uncut double sheet with 264 cards from the fifth series, featuring many stars and Hall of Famers. Being a final production sheet it has fully printed backs. Highlights include Hank Aaron, Bob Gibson, Nolan Ryan, Earl Weaver, and several team and checklist cards. Each card, including the stars, appears on the sheet two times. This 264-card "Jumbo" sheet measure 43 x 57 inches. Because of the large size, it is susceptible to minor imperfections. The sheet has various minor condition flaws such as creases, edge wear, a few tape marks and areas paper loss on the borders, and an edge tear on the top affecting one card. This sheet is very bright, clean, and extremely impressive, and could easily be cut down into two standard 132-card sheets. Assigning an overall grade to uncut sheets, especially one of this impressive size, can be extremely difficult. Many of the interior cards on this sheet would grade Nr/Mt. As outlined above, the various condition flaws, mostly relegated to the edges, corners, or outside cards, would cause the sheet to grade more modestly overall. It remains a very impressive and outstanding uncut sheet worthy of any advanced collection. The substantial size/weight of this item requires that there will be a shipping charge for this lot (which will vary depending upon where it is being shipped). The shipping charge will be billed separately from the auction invoice. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
