Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC (submitted by REA). Very attractive example of #7 Howie Camnitz (Pittsburgh Pirates) from the classic T3 Turkey Red cabinet-card issue. This card was part of a near-set of seventy-two different T3s consigned to this auction (all cards from this set, including the NM 84s of Cobb and Chance, appear in several lots). Bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, excellent centering, and even wear at the corners. The reverse of this card features a checklist of cards #1-76 but is missing the text below the checklist, which outlines the redemption offer in which coupons from Turkey Red, Old Mill, or Fez Cigarettes products could be exchanged by mail for one of the cards. These checklist (no offer) cards are particularly scarce. Turkey Red cabinets are universally recognized as one of the most beautiful baseball-card issues ever produced. This card would make a tremendous addition to any high-quality Turkey Red set! Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
