    Description

    1968 Topps 3-D Baseball Uncut Sheet of 9.

    Updated condition report: Please note that our cataloger inadvertently failed to report a thin crease that passes horizontally through the lower half inch of the sheet's center cards. There is no effect upon the cards in the upper or lower rows.

    One of the true rarities of the modern card era, the 1968 Topps 3-D test issue is among the most sought after and valuable sets from any decade. These attractive cards are extremely rare, produced in miniscule numbers as a test issue that was only distributed to a select few candy stores within walking distance to the Topps Company headquarters. Originally owned by an ex-employee of the Texas based company Xograph, which was contracted by Topps for the production of these high-tech cards, this uncut sheet and the one that precedes it are believed to be the only known examples to the hobby. Xograph would later go on to produce the popular Kellogg's 3-D sets. It is widely believed that all the discovered cards from this set have come directly from someone who either worked for Topps or Xograph. The Tommy Davis and John O'Donoghue proof cards present on this sheet were only recently discovered and brought $30,000+ apiece at auction in June of 2006. Also included on this first sheet is the late great Roberto Clemente, whose card has brought as much as $30,000 itself in the past year. Rounding out the sheet are Jim Maloney, Ron Fairly, Willie Davis, Tony Perez, Ron Swoboda and Bill Robinson. This could very well be a one-time offering, destined to never repeat itself. The uncut sheet itself is in pristine condition, well-preserved with no visible defects.
