1911 T3 Turkey Red #27 Christy Mathewson

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $5,581

Graded EX 60 by SGC. One of just three examples graded at this level by SGC, with only two graded higher. 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 of Christy Mathewson is in Excellent condition. The image area is flawless, with extremely bright, bold colors, and light, even corner wear. Of special note is the fact that the borders are perfectly clean and free of the "shading" problems, which so commonly plague Turkey Red cabinets. Perfectly bright and clean, both front and back. The reverse features a boldly printed checklist. This is a very strong example of one of the key cards of the era, which would be a worthy highlight in any ultra high-grade set of T3s, or any world-class collection of Hall of Famers or collection of the hobby's most classic cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$6,000. SOLD FOR $5,581
