1911 T9 Turkey Red Boxing Cabinets Near-Complete Set (21 of 26)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,231
Near-complete set featuring twenty-one different cards (of the 26 in the set) from the classic T9 Turkey Red boxing series, highlighted by Jack Johnson, Jim Jefferies, and Abe Attell (the middleman between the gamblers and players involved in the "fix" of the 1919 World Series). Missing only the following five cards for completion: #65 Langford, 67 Ketchell, 71, 72, and 74. Issued in conjunction with the T3 Turkey Red baseball series, the T9 boxing set features twenty-six champion boxers of the day, and is widely considered the most attractive and most desirable of all boxing issues. This group consists of the following: #51 Driscoll, 52 Attell, 53 Wolgast, 54 Coulon, 55 Jim Jeffries (Vg), 56 Sullivan, 57 Nelson, 58 McFarland, 59 Murphy, 60 Moran, 61 Marto, 62 Gardner, 63 Lewis, 64 Papke, 66 Brown, 68 Jeannette, 69 Cross, 70 McGovern, 73 Kaufman, 75 O'Brien, and 76 Jack Johnson (G-Vg). Very sharp looking group for these condition-sensitive large cards, virtually crease-free (just a few with small light creases), with clean backs, no tack holes, remarkably consistent in grade, ranging from Vg to Vg-Ex condition (a few very slightly lesser, Gd-Vg). Total 21 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $3,231
