Collection of three Hall of Famers from the 1911 T3 Turkey Red cabinet series. All of the cards have checklist backs. The collection consists of the following: #16 Johnny Evers (Fr), 23 Nap Lajoie (Pr-Fr), and 87 Eddie Collins (red ink dot on the back, otherwise Ex). Turkey Red cabinets are widely recognized as one of the most substantial, highest-quality baseball-card sets ever issued. Turkey Reds are large cards that are very susceptible to damage. These cards have been downgraded due to various flaws typical for T3s, but, as can easily be seen, are visually far more appealing than suggested by their technically accurate grades. This is a very pleasing low-grade trio comprised exclusively of HOFers, including Nap Lajoie. Total: 3 cabinets. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,185
