While the 1964 Topps Baseball Giants issue is readily available on the secondary market, the offered full uncut sheet is a near-impossible printing press survivor. Based on an early 1970s multi-million card warehouse find in Southern California, hobby lore has dictated that seven cards including Koufax and Mays are shortprints. However, this artifact tells a different tale. Based on the (8) nine-card row configuration, included is a complete set of (60) cards featuring (49) regular-prints, (10) double-prints and a triple-printed Mantle. Despite moderate perimeter wear along with scattered peripheral and interior creasing throughout (affecting most of the stars), this half-century old relic has withstood the decades in fine condition. The reverse displays only mild water staining primarily affecting Mantle on the upper left corner.
