Outstanding lower to medium-grade collection of 15 different cards from the extremely desirable 1911 T3 Turkey Red cabinet-card series, featuring three Hall of Famers. Turkey Red cabinets are universally recognized as one of the most beautiful baseball-card issues ever produced. This is an attractive group. Five of the fifteen cards have the Turkey Red advertisement on the backs. The collection consists of the following: #3 Leach (Gd), 12 Donovan (Ink marks near lower right corner, otherwise Vg), 23 Lajoie (HOF, altered along top border, otherwise Fr), 29 McConnell (Vg+), 32 Overall (Gd), 33 Pfeister (altered, two holes repaired along top border), 34 Rucker (Fr), 40 Willis (HOF, Fr), 80 Bender (HOF, Vg+), 92 Dygert (Pr-Fr), 93 Fromme (altered, glued tear at right edge), 102 Kling (pencil numbered on back, otherwise Gd), 106 Lord (pencil writing on back, otherwise Gd+), 115 Schlei (altered, two repaired pinholes), and 123 Thomas (pen numbered on back, otherwise Gd). T3s are big cards; due to their large size they tend to be more subject to corner wear and creases than smaller cards. Many of these cards have eye-appeal far superior to their technical grades. Total: 15 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
