Original 1971 Topps football uncut final production sheet consisting of 132 cards with fully printed reverses. The sheet is arranged in twelve rows of eleven cards. The twenty-two Hall of Famers featured on the sheet are Alworth, B. Bell, Blanda, Buchanan, Butkus, Csonka, Hanburger, Houston RC, J. Johnson, Jurgensen, Lanier RC, F. Little, Maynard, Olsen, Page, M. Renfro, Stenerud, Tarkenton, C. Taylor, Unitas, L. Wilson, and W. Wood. Additional key cards included are Brodie, Karras, Schottenheimer RC, and B. Smith. 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, a few edge nicks, and even wear on the corners. 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 $300. Estimate (open).
