1911 T3 Turkey Red Clark Griffith
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $2,350.00
Graded EX 5 by PSA. Turkey Red cabinets are universally recognized as among the most beautiful baseball card issues ever produced. Offered is an exceptionally high grade example of Hall of Famer Clark Griffith. Because the grading of T3s by the grading companies is relatively new, few collectors have had the opportunity to see exactly how tough they are in grading these large-format full-color cabinet cards. They are brutal. T3s are big cards. There's a lot of surface area to look at, both front and back, to find minute flaws. This example is crisp and clean, front and back, with bright, bold colors, four square corners, and checklist-style reverse. A grade of EX 5 might not be that big a deal for a T206 or a 1933 Goudey, but it is an extremely high grade for a T3. This card would make a significant addition to any high-grade Turkey Red or Hall of Famer card collection. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $2,350.00
