1911 T3 Turkey Red #101 Wee Willie Keeler SGC EX/NM 80 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $3,600

Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Superb high-grade example of New York Giants Hall of Famer Wee Willie Keeler from the T3 Turkey Red set, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful and impressive card sets ever issued. The offered card is one of the highlights of a completely untouched collection of tobacco cards consigned to this auction. This is one of Wee Willie Keeler's most impressive cards from any set and one of the most desirable Hall of Fame cards in the T3 set. The offered example is extremely attractive, with bright colors, flawless surface, perfect centering, and light, even wear to the corners. The checklist back (with offer) is entirely clean. An SGC grade of EX/NM 80 might not be that big a deal for a T206 or a 1933 Goudey, but it is an extremely high grade for a T3. (Only six cards, of any player, have ever graded higher than EX/NM out of 2,490 cards evaluated by SGC to date!) This is a magnificent and very high-grade example of Hall of Famer Wee Willie Keeler from this classic prewar set.  Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000++. SOLD FOR $3,600
