1911 T3 Turkey Red #27 Christy Mathewson

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,740

Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by PSA. Extremely attractive example of New York Giants Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson from the T3 Turkey Red series. 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 bordering on Excellent condition. The image area is flawless, with extremely bright, bold colors, and perfect registration. The light, even corner wear, which is slightly more pronounced in the lower left, tis all that keeps this card from a higher grade. 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 high-grade set of T3s, any world-class collection of Hall of Famers or collection of the hobby's most classic cards. SMR in the assigned grade is $3,900. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $4,740
