Original 1961 Fleer (Series 2) football uncut final production sheet consisting of 132 cards with fully printed reverses, and highlighted by two examples each of Hall of Famers Don Maynard and Jim Otto’s rookie cards. Arranged in twelve rows of eleven cards each, the Hall of Famers included are Mix, Blanda, Maynard RC, and Otto RC. Additional keys included are Jack Kemp and Tom Flores RC. 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 some of the interior cards, a few edge nicks, and light staining on the middle right edge. 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. 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 $200. Estimate (open).
