Two uncut sheets of Topps hockey cards from the 1970s. 1) Original 1973-1974 Topps hockey uncut final production sheet consisting of 132 cards with fully printed reverses.

Smith RC, two Sittler, and two Ullman. 2) Original 1975-1976 Topps hockey uncut final production sheet consisting of 132 cards with fully printed reverses. The sheet is arranged in twelve rows of eleven cards. The eleven Hall of Famers featured on the sheet are Bucyk, Clarke, Dionne, Giacomin, Lafleur, Lapointe, Mikita AS, Orr, Parent, Parent AS, and Ratelle. 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 sheets are in Gd- Vg condition due to small creases affecting the interior cards, a few edge nicks, and light staining in a few spots. If framed and hung on a wall, many of these flaws would be mitigated and they would project an outstanding overall Excellent appearance! The sheets each measure approximately 28-1/2 x 43 inches. Total: 2 uncut sheets. 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 invoiceReserve $200. Estimate (open).
