    Description

    Extremely Rare 1969 Topps Test "Pak-O-Fun" Complete Set Uncut Sheet.
    NOTE: The missing pieces are parts of card #'s 5 (above words Boom-A-Rang), 6 (under the Frankenstein cartoon) and 9 (under words Boom-A-Rang).

    This extremely rare test series certainly looks like it was meant to be sold around or with Halloween baskets. The cards have various formats including cards that would make fingers puppets, the "Foldees" format used a couple years earlier for the "Comic Book Foldees" series, punch out cards to make party favors and a selection of re-issued cards from the "You'll Die Laughing" funny monsters series. The art is the unmistakable talents of Jack Davis who passed away in July 2016 at the age of 93. The individual cards advertise a set of 42 and that is exactly what this 21-1/2" x 29" sheet offers. Final cards were to be 3-1/8" x 5-1/4" in size, one card features Teddy Roosevelt, Ben Franklin and Babe Ruth. This has to be Ruth's rarest card collectible. There is only light creasing around the perimeter and a trio of punch out pieces are missing. This is a true rarity that we have been unable to find one ever coming up for auction.
