Original 1972 Topps uncut final production sheet of 66 cards, with printed reverses. All cards on this sheet are from the sixth series (#657-787). This partial sheet represents half of a complete 132-card sheet, on which cards would normally be double printed. Hall of Famers and stars include Rod Carew, Hoyt Wilhelm, and Steve Garvey. 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 in Very Good condition due to several creases affecting some of the interior cards and light moisture stains on both the left and right borders, but if framed and hung on a wall it would project a spectacular Excellent or better appearance. The sheet measures 28.25 x 21 inches.

Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
