Uncut Sheets of 1962 Topps Football Cards

There are 176 cards in the 1962 Topps football card set. The cards were printed on a 264-card sheet resembling this 1966 Topps baseball card sheet. The full set fit once on the sheet, with room for 88 of the cards to be printed a second time. The 88 that were printed only once on the sheet are short prints.

I have seen pictures of each of the two half-sheets of 1962 Topps cards, and I have constructed virtual versions of them below. I don't know which was the left half-sheet, and which was the right.

These two half-sheets indicate that the cards that the price guides identify as short prints are incorrect. My old Beckett catalog lists 69 short prints in this set. These sheets, however, indicate that there are actually 88 short prints, and that the set of short prints is much different from what Beckett says. I have marked the correct set of short prints in the 1962 Topps section of the Gallery.
