Default Let's see some uncut sheets....any sheet from 1887 - 1967

Hey guys,
How's about showing off some of your uncut sheets.

I'll start this show with these 4 sheets which comprise a complete W560 set**....circa 1927


.

.


** Incidentally, this set has been mis-classified....obviously, these are not strip cards.

Here's a few

1908 E91A strips



I"m working on a '41 Playball set in uncut form. With the ones below and a stack of others that aren't framed I'm down to needing 16.




'34 World Wide Gum


1940 W711-2 set


'48 Leaf Boxing, with a few missing their heads



These last 3 are a bit past Ted's cutoff, but they are some of my favorites so I hope it's ok to include them.

'53 Bowman


'55 Topps


'64 Topps Giants, debunking the myth of short prints that was already pretty obvious to anyone that collected this set from vending packs

Cards on the 6th sheet of the 1933 Goudey set were issued circa Spring/Summer of '33. This fabulous sheet includes double-printed cards
of Babe Ruth (#144).

Including Babe Ruth (card #149), Lou Gehrig (card #160), Jimmy Foxx (card #154), Leo Durocher (card #147) and Moe Berg (card #158).

the Summer of 1934 which finally completed this 240-card set.
T'was a clever marketing trick that Goudey played on collectors in order to sell a lot of cards in 1933....but, it was also a very "mean" trick on the collectors.

Speaking about the "1933" GOUDEY Lajoie....here's the the 1934 Hi# series sheet (cards #73 - 96) in which GOUDEY modified to include the Lajoie (#106) card.

T212 uncut sheet from 1911 - discussed on Net54 back in 2010, auctioned by H&S that fall (image from H&S).

Note the bottom row in the image - runs horizontal, the rest are vertical.


My interest is that T207 was likely printed via the same process (cards running both horizontally and vertically) as evidenced by an Adams card (shown previously) as well as the example from REA a few weeks ago that has parts of 5 different backs showing (image from auction).

Default Let's see some uncut sheets....any sheet from 1887 - 1967

When Bowman introduced their first BB card set after WWII, they continued using their "PLAY BALL" Trademark on their wax-pack wrapper.


1948 Bowman 1-cent wrapper
. .


The printing of the 1948 BOWMAN set is very interesting.....the printer took their 36-card production sheet and produced a 48-card set. In their 1st press runs
they printed cards #1 - 36. Then, in their later press runs they modified their printing plates by replacing 12 cards in the first group of 36 with cards #37 - 48.

The 36-card uncut sheet shown here represents the later press runs. Cards #37 - 48 are interspersed among the lower number cards. Therefore, this process
created Double-Prints of 24 low numbers....Single-Prints of 12 low numbers....and, another set of Single-Prints of the 12 high numbers.

'64 Topps Giants, debunking the myth of short prints that was already pretty obvious to anyone that collected this set from vending packs
[/quote]

I just want to point out that the 7 "Short Prints" are all in a row on the left side of this sheet and I wonder, as with many other Topps issues of that time is there a 2nd sheet which would confirm the long-held suspicions of those 7 short prints.

I will also state as a collector/dealer who worked on those sets, those 7 cards tended to show up on most want lists and were far easier to sell.

Also -- I know someone in the DFW area who accumulated a couple hundred (I did not count) of the Mantle and I would certainly call Mantle a Double or even a Triple Print

Default 1949 BOWMAN (1st series sheet)

In some regions of the country the 1st series of BOWMAN cards in 1949 (circa..April-May) comprised of 36 subjects. In other regions, 72 subjects were available.
As a kid growing up in Hillside, NJ in our neighborhood all 72 were available.

On display here are cards #1 -3, 73, 5 - 36.





.



BOWMAN printed 7 sheets (36-cards each) to produce this set of 240 cards. The first 6 sheets have been discovered. I don't know of anyone who has (or has seen)
the 7th sheet. If anyone on this forum has seen, or even has a 7th sheet (cards #217 - 240, plus 12 variations) please post it here.
Or email me at...... tedzan11@comcast.net


The major stars on the 2nd sheet (cards #37 - 72) in this series are Jackie and Yogi......

Default 1949 BOWMAN (3rd series sheet)

The GRAY (or SLATE) cards on this 3rd series sheet are normally either GREEN or ORANGE. This color printing mistake on this particular sheet occurred
occasionally, as a considerable number of these 17 mis-colored subjects have been found over the years.






HOFers featured on this sheet......

Default 1949 BOWMAN (4th series sheet)

The BOWMAN GUM company got us kids all excited in the Summer of 1949 when they issued these 36 cards with facsimile autographs on their backs.

In 1982, I traded a 1951 Bowman Mantle (Vg) rookie card for this sheet in a Sports Shop in Media, Pennsylvania.


4th series (cards # 109 -144)





..........................HOFer .........................................and, in my opinion a HOFer

Default Hi # series....7th sheet (simulation)

As noted earlier, to the best of my knowledge, the 7th sheet of the 1949 Bowman set has yet to be discovered. I've arranged these 36 cards based on my research.



.................................................. .................................................. ....................................^------------------^




There are 12 new Rookie cards introduced on this sheet. And, 4 of them are HOFers.






Five retired players are included on this sheet. George McQuinn has a great story....in the twilight of his BB career of how he "sparked" the NY
Yankees into winning the AL Pennant in 1947. That June, he was the AL batting leader (.392). His defensive play at 1st base was outstanding.








HOFer's in the 12 re-printed variations





For more detailed information regarding this enigmatic BB card set, check-out the 1949 Bowman article in the Spring 1983 issue of BASEBALL CARDS magazine
authored by Ralph Triplette and Ted Zanidakis.

Default 1948 BOWMAN GUM Football sheets

Sportscard collectors (young and older) had a tough time trying to complete the 1948 BOWMAN Football set. The 1st series of 36 cards were available early in the Fall of '48.
The top line on the backs of these cards read...."NO. x IN A SERIES OF 108". However, the cards were issued "skip-numbered". A clever marketing trick that we know was in
the 1933 GOUDEY set and the 1949 LEAF BB set. BOWMAN issued this set in 3 series....the 3rd series cards were short-printed. If you were persistent in completing this set,
you would have accomplished it by December 1948.

I was lucky to have all 3 uncut sheets of this set (diagramed here on the 2nd page of this SCD article). Therefore, I wrote this article.

Default 1952 BOWMAN FB (large cards) uncut sheet

Saved the best for last.....of all my BOWMAN sheets. It is my favorite sheet. The artwork & color is some of the best you will find in any post-WWII sportscards sets.

I acquired this sheet in 1982 at the Sports/Hobby shop in Media, Pennsylvania. This sheet represents the 1st series of the LARGE version (printed Fall-Winter of '52).
These 32 cards reflect BOWMAN's first attempt to compete with the very popular 1952 TOPPS BB cards. BOWMAN reprinted their smaller 1952 FB cards, which were
originally issued in early Fall of '52. With this larger version, Bowman increased the card size to 2 1/2 " x 3 3/4 ".
Football HOFer's featured on this sheet are.....Sammy Baugh, Paul Brown, Otto Graham, Charlie Justice, Y. A. Tittle, Charley Trippi, and Frank Gifford (rookie).

Since 1982, I have searched for another one of these sheets, to no avail. I guess, we can say this is a very unique piece of sportscard memorabilia.

I'd be curious if there is a 2nd 67 sheet from that series. If so, all the cards are printed equally. If not -- we have 44 DP's and 44 regular prints. Or 44 SP's and 44 regular prints depending on how you look at your glass (Half full or Half empty)

I just want to point out that the 7 "Short Prints" are all in a row on the left side of this sheet and I wonder, as with many other Topps issues of that time is there a 2nd sheet which would confirm the long-held suspicions of those 7 short prints.

I will also state as a collector/dealer who worked on those sets, those 7 cards tended to show up on most want lists and were far easier to sell.

Also -- I know someone in the DFW area who accumulated a couple hundred (I did not count) of the Mantle and I would certainly call Mantle a Double or even a Triple Print

Rich-
I've seen 3 of these sheets in 20+ years of looking, and own/owned 2 of them. They were all exactly the same.
In the '70's Dodger Stadium used to sell envelopes of '64 Giants, 25 cards for a buck. We bought TONS of them, as it was the easiest way to get cards of players that had retired before my friends and I started collecting. Koufax was almost as plentiful as Mantle (and way more popular in LA) and there were tons of Stuart, Cisco, Mays, Causey, etc. When we started trading thru the mail about '73 my friends and I put together and sold complete sets, and it didn't appear any card was tougher than others. At the monthly card meeting in Garden Grove one guy always had a table stack high with them, I assume he had access to vending cases. So based on all of this and the sheets I don't believe there were short prints on that set.

FWIW when I was putting together a high grade set about 10 years ago Johnny Romano was the card that eluded me for months in PSA 9.
