1911 T3 Turkey Red PSA-Graded Collection Including Two Hall of Famers (6)
Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $3,231.25
Addendum: In the printed catalog, #126 Owen Wilson is listed in the text of the description as being graded EX 5 by PSA. This is an error. It is graded VG-EX 4 by PSA.
Collection of six T3 Turkey Red cabinets, highlighted by two Hall of Famers, each of which has been graded and encapsulated by PSA: #1 Mordecai Brown (HOF, VG 3), 24 Mike Mitchell (VG-EX 4 [MK], MK qualifier due to extremely light pencil marks on the front), 27 Christy Mathewson (HOF, PR-FR 1, bright and crisp but downgraded due to a couple pinholes and stains at the top border), 43 Out at Third (VG-EX 4), 48 Jack Murray (VG 3), and 126 Owen Wilson (VG-EX 4 - Turkey Red back, last card in the set). Turkey Red cabinets are widely recognized as one of the most substantial, highest-quality baseball card sets ever issued. Turkey Reds are large cards which are very susceptible to damage. These cards have been downgraded due to various mostly minor flaws typical for T3s, and are visually far more appealing than suggested by their technically accurate grades. Total 6 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,231.25
