The article below reminded me of a time when I first discovered the hobby in the early 80's when uncut sheets were a goldmine. Safer than money in the bank. Since rediscovering and re-entering the fray a few years ago, I began to read a few assorted pieces online indicating that they commanded nowhere near the premiums they got at the late 80's/early 90's peak of the hobby. Once I gave it a search on the Bay, it looks like the value of uncut sheets have been knocked to the canvas.
A closer look says, as suspected, the older the product, the bigger the price. While any 80's era uncut sheet can be had for a song (or two), even some of the more rare and seemingly in-demand 80's era sheets have gone largely ignored thanks to overproduction. Case in point.......this '82 Topps sheet featuring the Ripken RC for $56.55.
As you would probably expect, the older the sheet, the higher the price. A '65 O-Pee-Chee sheet featuring at least 11 Hall of Famers fetched almost $3,400. So if you have anything pre-1970, it can still grab a pretty nice premium.
If you're holding an uncut sheet, would it benefit you to chop it up? Let's go to the experts.......
