The collection consists of the following: #1 Brown (HOF, ink stamp on back, otherwise Vg), 30 Mullin (ink stamp on back, otherwise Vg-Ex), 88 Coveleski (Fr, Turkey Red back), 90 Doolan (Pr), 91 Downey (Fr-Gd, Turkey Red back), two 93 Fromme (Gd and Fr, both with Turkey Red back), 94 Gibson (ink stamp on back, otherwise Vg, Turkey Red back), 96 Groom (Fr, Turkey Red back), 101 Keeler (HOF, Gd, Turkey Red back), 116 Schmidt (Pr), and 120 Street (Fr, Turkey Red back). Turkey Red cabinets are widely recognized as one of the most substantial, highest-quality baseball-card sets ever issued. Interesting provenance note: These cards were personally saved as a young man by the grandfather of our consignor! This is a very pleasing mid-grade group highlighted by two Hall of Famers.
