Uncut Sheets
Year issued: 1967-1991
Number of sheets: 1 or more from each series
Harder to find sheets: All are hard to find, especially the older ones
Summary: Uncut sheets are very hard to find. Very little known about them other then there being one or more from each series. Since these were never actually sold by Topps, they must have been taken right from the factory, probably by employees at that time. My brother purchased a very large uncut sheet at a flea market that you can look at by clicking here.
