Shipping an Uncut Sheet
« on: June 07, 2015, 12:52:29 PM »
I was wondering if a complete uncut sheet could be shipped in a regular poster shipping tube ?

Can it be safely rolled without it peeling the stickers ?

Since I'm in Montreal, Canada, it's probably going to be on a hell of a ride, so I wanna make sure the item will arrive in good condition.

Anyone had an uncut sheet shipped ?

PS: I'm thinking of buying one of those multiple 1979 uncut sheets - anything I should know about those ?

If it's a valuable/rare sheet, IMO you're better off paying to ship it flat.  If you're going to roll it, at least put the kiss cut sticker side on the inside.

I just received a package with a bunch of uncut ANS sheets, and even with $150 in packing and shipping charges they didn't get through completely undinged, but at least they were flat.  I can't imagine how bad they could have been had they been rolled and slid into rough cardboard shipping tubes.

Thanks for the info!

It's not any rare versions but still will make sure it's shipped flat.

I better make sure the uncut sheet I'm buying hasn't already been rolled - I've seen a few entries with curled corners and was wondering how these were handled.

I'd think older sheets wouldn't have the integrity to survive without chancing some sort of blemish and separation unless it was a rolled loosely rather than a small, tight roll. Even so, every sheet I have ever received from Topps (OS, OS2, ANS2 Clings) was shipped flat. Even that route has its disadvantages as well.
