Offered is an uncut sheet (28 x 43 inches) of 132 1969 Topps "Planet of the Apes" cards, representing three 44-card sets. The "Planet of the Apes" card series was produced by Topps in 1969 and features color photographs from this popular movie starring Charlton Heston. 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 a few creases, a 1-inch edge tear repaired with white framing tape on back, three moisture stains on the left edge, and large surface scratch on the reverse. If framed and hung on a wall, many of these flaws would be mitigated and it would project an outstanding overall Excellent appearance! This is a scarce sheet representing three complete sets of this popular issue which would be a superb addition to any uncut-sheet or advanced nonsports collection. 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).
