Default Uncut sheets Topps 1971 and 1972 any idea on value?

I have two uncut sheets Topps 1971 and 1972. I'm planning on listing them on ebay but I can't find anything similar there to compare them to. I thought maybe board members would some idea on a good ballpark value. I have photos below. They are not in very good condition as they've been stored rolled up for the last 45 years, and have creases and significant edge wear.
Any advice appreciated!

Welcome to the boards. Did you consider an auctionhouse first? Sounds like your plan is Buy-it-Now/Best Offer. It might be better served with REA or Heritage, IMO.

REA and Heritage are major auctionhouses like Sotheby's. You would consign the item to them, they would take pictures and list it, handle the sale, and mail it out themselves. But it would get in front of bigger spenders.
If you want to sell it on eBay, you can. I just think this type of item would sell better in a major auctionhouse.

Those should both go to an established hobby AH.

Interesting patterns. The 1971 sheet uses the old 4,4,4 Topps pattern but it's sequenced AAB not ABA. that 72 sheet is 3,3,3,3 AABB. Wonder why they decided to switch things up so late in the game?

I find the prices of uncut sheets really vary.

When I'm buying - they go very high.

When I'm passing - they sell very cheaply.

That's my theory at least - and I'm sticking to it!

Dave Hornish:

I know you've seen this thread (since you commented) but when I checked the sheets at the absurd hour of 3 AM since the water was out here and it was too hot in the house: But these sheets also mean there HAVE to be other sheets issued as the 5th series in 1971 was 120 cards and the first card I searched for in those sheets was Vida Blue. Back in the day, the Blue card was always referenced as being tougher than most. There was no Blue (and some other cards from that series) on the 71 sheet.

72 was a fairly normal 131 cards and with an extra checklist there should not be any shortages in cards printed. Again, there has to be a 2nd sheet to finish the series so I'd be very interested to see the 2nd sheet.

That way we could really tell if there are any shortages in either series.

Regards
Rich

I've been collecting pictures of 1950 thru 1976 uncut sheets for 25 years and kinda have become a self taught expert on these matters.

1971 series 5 is a VERY unusual layout as it has 121 unique cards when the series 5 CL is counted.

The 71 sheet posted above has rows 1, 2 and 9 printed twice, 66 cards. Rows 3 and 4 were printed 3 times, 66 cards. This equates to 55 unique cards and explains why Yaz, Larry Hisle and Frank Howard among others are so easy to find.

The left half/A side of the full 264 card sheet that Rich has requested is below and has 66 unique cards printed twice in 33 card sections. Vida is in row 9 and 12, column 4.
