1911 T9 Turkey Red Boxing Cabinets Partial Set (17 of 26) Including Johnson and Jeffries
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,000
Near-complete set featuring seventeen different cards (of the 26 in the set) from the classic T9 Turkey Red boxing series, highlighted by Jack Johnson and Jim Jeffries. Missing only the following nine cards for completion: #52 Attell, 53 Wolgast, 58 McFarland, 67 Ketchel, 68 Jeannette, 69 Cross, 71 Hurley, 74 Lewis, and 75 O'Brien. Issued in conjunction with the T3 Turkey Red baseball series, the T9 boxing set features twenty-six champion boxers of the day, and is widely considered the most attractive and most desirable of all boxing issues. This is a very strong and sharp-looking collection of these cabinet cards, the majority of which grade Vg-Ex with three Vg. A few of the cards, including Jeffries, measure slightly smaller than the others, suggesting a possible factory miscut or ever-so-slight trim. Keys: #51 Driscoll (Vg-Ex+), 54 Coulon (Vg-Ex+), 55 Jim Jeffries (presents as Vg-Ex, possible slight trim along bottom border and small touch of color added to the bottom corners), 57 Nelson (Vg-Ex), 60 Moran (Vg-Ex), 64 Papke (Vg-Ex), 65 Langford (Vg-Ex), and 76 Jack Johnson (Vg+/Vg-Ex). Extremely attractive group of these condition-sensitive large cards, with clean backs (all displaying advertising with offer reverses), remarkably consistent in grade and providing a superb foundation for the assembly of a complete set of this classic boxing-card issue. Total: 17 cards. SOLD FOR $3,000
