Lot # 366 (of 1137)   < Previous Lot | Next Lot >

1910-1911 T3 Turkey Red #1 Mordecai Brown

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $711

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Very attractive example of Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer Mordecai Brown, the #1 card from the T3 Turkey Red set. The #1 card in the Turkey Red set (as is the case with many vintage sets) is a significant condition rarity due to gravitating to the top of the pile when put in numerical order, and thus naturally being exposed to more wear than other cards. The offered example is outstanding with brilliant colors, flawless surface, perfect centering, and light, even wear to the corners. A light horizontal crease, extending approximately one-third of the way across the top border, is responsible for the modest technical grade. The checklist back (with offer) is perfectly clean and boldly printed. This is an exceptional example, far superior than normally seen, of Hall of Famer Mordecai Brown from the classic T3 Turkey Red set. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grade is $635. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $711
