Extremely rare uncut sheet of fifty-five 1973 Topps "The Waltons" test cards based on the popular television series. “The Waltons” is one of rarest sets of all 1970s Topps test issues. The set was never actually issued to the public, and we believe that all known items related to this series have originated over the years from the Topps Vault. The full-color cards feature the cast members in various scenes from the television show. This 55-card sheet represents the complete set of fifty known cards from the set plus five duplicates (#19, 26, 31, 34, and 40). Aside from a few creases affecting some of the interior cards, the sheet (29 x 21 inches) remains in Near Mint condition. The sheet has a fully printed reverse and has color bars along the left border with printing notations ("Side B") printed on the bottom border. The sheet has a printed date, "Jan 21, 1974," along the left edge. This is an extraordinary high-grade uncut sheet, the first of its kind that we have ever seen, from this unbelievably rare Topps test issue. 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 (open).
