Uncut Sheets of 1962 Fleer Football Cards

By collecting and studying miscut cards, my good friend Paul has figured out how uncut sheets of 1962 Fleer football cards were numbered. The pictures below show the configuration of the two halves of a 264-card full sheet. If you hold your cursor above a card, your browser should show you the number of the card and the name of the player. Clicking on a card will bring up the full-sized scan. (A real uncut sheet would not have lines between the cards--that's an effect of scanning them individually.)

The first half sheet held a full set of 88 cards in the top 8 rows, then the top 4 rows were repeated.

Mel Branch - 1962 Fleer football card #32 Ron Nery - 1962 Fleer football card #88 Art Powell - 1962 Fleer football card #60 Bill Miller - 1962 Fleer football card #28 Dick Harris - 1962 Fleer football card #84 Robert Brooks - 1962 Fleer football card #56 Cotton Davidson - 1962 Fleer football card #24 Paul Lowe - 1962 Fleer football card #80 Jim Norton - 1962 Fleer football card #52 Archie Matsos - 1962 Fleer football card #20 Volney Peters - 1962 Fleer football card #76

The other half sheet also held a full set of 88 cards in the top 8 rows, and the other 4 rows were repeated. A 264-card sheet thus held 3 full sets of 88 cards, with no short prints or double prints.

This is how the cards on the half-sheets were numbered. You can see that the cards in each column were numbered sequentially, four at time. After every fourth card in the sequence, the numbering picked up and resumed three columns to the left. Paul observed that the pattern is the same as that on uncut sheets of 1963 Fleer football cards, only upside-down.

32 88 60 28 84 56 24 80 52 20 76

The cards in green are those that are most difficult to find in high grades. According to PSA's population report, twenty or fewer of each of these cards have been graded PSA 8 or better. The cards on the right sides of the half-sheets apparently were most likely to be damaged or miscut in production. The two toughest cards in the set, #1, Billy Lott, and #4, Babe Parilli, were in the corners of one of the half-sheets. My guess is that this half-sheet was on the right side of the full sheet.
