    Description

    1960 Fleer "Baseball Greats" Uncut Partial Sheet with Rare #80 Grove/Martin Error. Offered is a 7-1/2" x 14" uncut partial sheet panel featuring 12 players from the 1960 Fleer "Baseball Greats" edition including the extremely rare print error of card #80 with the Lefty Grove front and Pepper Martin reverse. Nine other uncut panels, including every other card in the set, are available as one lot elsewhere in this auction. The panel consists of card #'s 63-65, 68-70, 73-75 and 78-80. Considering that each card has a red background it is clear Fleer couldn't include Pepper Martin and substituted an obvious green background replacement for sheet placement never intending to have the card publicly circulated. The panel has one short crease affecting card #'s 79 and 80. A factory induced cut out, a sign for the finishing department in clear in the bottom edge of the Grove/Martin rarity. A rare and wonderful display and conversation piece.
