1911 T3 Turkey Red #23 Nap Lajoie

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,304

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. The T3 Turkey Red is one of Nap Lajoie’s most impressive and classic cards. Lajoie, 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 clean, both front and back, with bold colors, perfect registration, and one barely detectable light diagonal crease visible more from the back. This card provides collectors a rare, relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive high-grade example without compromising on all of the most important display qualities of the card. Sharp corners are great, but they are not worth the extra money to everyone. (In NM condition, for example, this card lists for an SMR value of $8,000.) This is an extremely impressive looking example of one of card collecting's most classic cards, in a very desirable medium grade. The SMR value is $1,650. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $1,304
