1911 T3 Turkey Red #99 Walter Johnson

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,000

Graded EX 5 (MK) by PSA. The T3 Turkey Red is one of Walter Johnson's most impressive and classic cards. Johnson, 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 extraordinary example of Walter Johnson is in strong Excellent condition, which is particularly impressive for a T3 Turkey Red. The image area is virtually flawless, with extremely bright, bold colors, perfect registration, perfect centering, and just a hint of light, even corner wear. The qualifier results from the unobstruive numbering ("99") of the card along the top reverse border. Bright and clean both front and back otherwise. This is an outstanding card! The reverse features the Turkey Red advertising back style (often considered more desirable among collectors). T3s rarely survive in this high grade, let alone examples of the key stars of the set such as Walter Johnson. This is an amazing example of one of the key cards of the era, which would be a worthy highlight in any world-class collection of Hall of Famers, T3s, or the hobby's most classic cards. SOLD FOR $3,000
