1974 Topps Deckle Edge Complete Set Uncut Sheet
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $928.00
1974 Topps "Deckle Edge" full uncut production sheet representing a complete set of all seventy-two cards. The 1974 Topps "Deckle Edge" set was a test issue which received very limited distribution only in the Massachusetts area. Uncut sheets of this test issue are very rare. This sheet features "white backs" variety cards, which are somewhat scarcer than the "gray backs." Included are all the major stars of the day: Rose, Ryan, Aaron, Jackson, Seaver, Brooks and Frank Robinson, Yaz, and Bench, are just a few of the many stars in this set. When these cards were issued, as their name implies, they were cut with "deckle edges." The sheet has a few condition flaws, none of great significance (especially since the sheet is fairly large for having just seventy-two cards) but including some light creasing, a one-half inch tear on the bottom border, and five pieces of framer's tape along the back of the top border, still displays beautifully. In overall Very Good to Excellent condition. This is an extremely rare uncut sheet featuring a complete set of one of the most popular Topps test sets of the era. Dimensions: 43 x 29 inches. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $928.00
