Two different examples from the T3 Turkey Red cabinet-card series, each of which has been graded and encapsulated by SGC. This is a very clean and attractive pair, both with checklist backs. 1) #96 Bob Groom (GOOD 30). Bright and crisp, with vibrant colors and light corner wear. Presenting as Vg-Ex from the front, a few small spots of paper loss on the reverse account for the technically accurate assigned grade. 2) #103 Ed Konetchy (VG 40). A striking and beautiful card with brilliant colors and very light corner wear. A single crease accounts for the very conservatively assigned grade. This is a very attractive pair from one of card collecting's most classic sets, each with far better eye-appeal than suggested by their assigned grades. Also included is a Turkey Red tobacco coupon, which was originally redeemable for T3 cards (and which refer to T3s as "a handsome lithographed picture"). Total: 2 cards plus 1 coupon. Reserve $200.
