    Very Rare 1972 Topps Test Cloth Stickers Near Set (31/33) - #2 on the PSA Set Registry. Rank: #2 on the PSA Set Registry "All Time Finest" list with a 7.97 GPA. Offered is a 31-card near set of Topps "Cloth Stickers" which never made it past the "test" stages of production and distribution. Going back to the gum makers early years of trading card production, Topps test marketed dozens of sport and non-sport ideas which never came to fulfillment. Many of these cardboard bound "ideas" are quite rare today but have no shortage of passionate collectors. Each subject is portrayed just as they were in the standard baseball series of that year including size, color and image but are many times more fragile as noted by the fact that all show almost no signs of handling, none have separated from the original paper mounts. Includes: Graded - PSA GEM MT 10: 4 cards, Klimkowski, Lefebvre, Maddox, White; PSA MINT 9: 11 cards, Concepcion, Davis, Fitzmorris, Floyd, Foster, Howard, Lahoud, Martinez, O'Brien, Shamsky, Swanson; PSA NM-MT 8: 8 cards, Brown, Frisella, Checklist, McCovey, Red Sox, Severinsen, Stone, Watson; PSA NM 7: 3 cards, Fregosi, McRae, Rodriguez; PSA EX-MT 6: 2 cards, Callison, Cook; PSA EX 5: 2 cards, Fryman, Harmon; PSA Authentic: 1 card, Aparicio. Mint or Gem MT examples of the two missing subjects - Clemente and Aaron are being offered elsewhere in this auction.
