1911 T3 Turkey Red #27 Christy Mathewson

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,920

Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. 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 is bright and crisp, both front and back, with bold colors and near-perfect centering. Light wear to the corners (most noticeable in the lower right), with a few insignificant light stains along the bottom portion of the card and to the left of Mathewson's head. Clean, boldy printed checklist reverse, with a faint crease extending from the left edge to the center of the card (near the number). This example provides collectors a rare, relatively affordable alternative to a far more expensive high-grade example without compromising on many of the most important visual qualities of the card. A very attractive example of one of card collecting's great classics, in an extremely desirable grade. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,920
