1911 T3 Turkey Red Cabinet-Card Collection (16)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $4,200

Stunning collection of fifteen different cards (plus one duplicate) from the classic T3 Turkey Red cabinet card issue. These cards were part of a very substantial, totally untouched collection of 1910-era tobacco cards consigned to this auction (all cards from this collection appear in several lots on the Internet Only section). This is a beautiful group! Each card is bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, outstanding centering, and light touches of wear at the corners or along the edges, with the few lesser-graded cards due almost entirely to small flaws on the reverse. Two cards are graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA). This collection consists of the following: #10 Devlin (Vg-Ex), 12 Donovan (Vg+), 22 Krause (Vg), 30 Mullin (Fr, due to heavy pencil marking on the checklist reverse; otherwise Vg-Ex), 31 Magee (Vg), 34 Rucker (Vg+), 41 Wiltse (VG+ 45), 48 Murray (Gd/Vg), 79 Bell (Gd), 90 Doolan (Vg), 97 Hoblitzell (VG 40), 102 Kling (Gd, due to a small spot of paper loss on reverse; otherwise Ex), 110 McBride (Vg), 111 Niles (Gd+), and two 119 Stone (one Vg+ and one Fr, due to pencil marking on the checklist reverse; otherwise Vg-Ex). All of the cards feature a checklist reverse, except for Niles (ad back). Turkey Red cabinets are universally recognized as one of the most beautiful baseball card issues ever produced. These cards would be a worthy addition to any prewar-card collection or Turkey Red set and offer a relatively affordable opportunity to acquire a substantial group of classic T3 Turkey Red cabinet cards with an appearance far better than suggested by their technical grades. Total: 16 cards.  Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $4,200
