1911 T3 Turkey Red Walter Johnson

Starting Bid - $2,500.00, Sold For - $12,925.00

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. The finest example known. Only two have been graded at this level, with none graded higher. 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 Excellent to Mint condition. The image area is flawless, with extremely bright, bold colors, perfect registration, and with just the slightest hint of corner wear. Of special note is the fact that the borders are perfectly clean and totally free of the "shading" problems which so commonly plague Turkey Red cabinets. Perfectly bright and clean both front and back. The reverse features the Turkey Red advertising back style. 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, worthy of the finest set of T3s in the world, and would be a worthy highlight in any world-class collection of Hall of Famers or collection of the hobby's most classic cards. SMR is $10,000 in this grade, but we have consistently seen auction prices for high-grade Turkey Reds far exceed SMR, especially for extremely desirable Hall of Famers. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000/$10,000. SOLD FOR $12,925.00
