Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. The T3 Turkey Red is one of Christy Mathewson’s most impressive and classic cards. Mathewson, of course, is one of the key Hall of Famers in the Turkey Red set, which is universally recognized as one of the most substantial and beautiful sets ever produced. This example is bright and crisp, both front and back, with bold colors and near-perfect centering. Even wear to the corners (the extreme tip of the lower right has broken off), with a few insignificant light surface creases on the lower right corner. Clean, boldly printed checklist (with offer) reverse, with a faint crease near the lower left corner. This example provides collectors a rare, relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive high-grade example without compromising on many of the most important visual qualities of the card. A very attractive example of one of card collecting's great classics, in an extremely desirable grade. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+.
