Collection of fifteen different 1911 T3 Turkey Red cabinet cards, including six Hall of Famers highlighted by Cy Young. Twelve have checklist backs and three have Turkey Red ad backs. This collection consists of the following: #4 Bresnahan (HOF, Vg), 5 Crawford (HOF, Pr due to four pinholes and pencil marks on reverse), 8 Clarke (HOF, Pr due to pinhole and staple holes), 15 Elberfeld (Vg), two 38 Stahl (Vg-Ex and Pr due to multiple pinholes), 42 Young (HOF, Fr), 82 Bransfield (pinhole, otherwise Vg), 91 Downey (Fr), 106 Lord (Pr-Fr, ad back), 107 Manning (Fr), 110 McBride (pen on reverse, otherwise Vg+, ad back), 115 Schlei (Pr-Fr), 124 Wallace (HOF, Pr-Fr due to glue on reverse), and 125 Walsh (HOF, pinhole, otherwise Vg, ad back). 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, and are visually far more appealing than suggested by their technically accurate grades. This is an attractive-looking group including six Hall of Famers. Total: 15 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
