1911 T9 Turkey Red Boxing Cabinets Complete Set (26)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,525
Complete set of twenty-six different cards from the classic T9 Turkey Red boxing series, including Jack Johnson, Jim Jefferies, and Abe Attell (who is credited with being the middleman between the gamblers and players involved in the "fix" of the 1919 World Series). 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. We have selected one card from this set to be graded by SGC. Keys: #51 Driscoll (Pr), 52 Attell (Pr), 53 Wolgast (Gd), 54 Coulon (Pr), 55 Jim Jeffries (SGC VG/EX 50), 57 Nelson (tear on the right edge, otherwise Vg-Ex), 58 McFarland (Pr), 60 Moran (Pr), 64 Papke (Vg), 65 Langford (Vg), 67 Ketchell (Vg-Ex/Ex), 68 Jeannette (Pr), 75 O'Brien (Vg), and 76 Jack Johnson (Ex appearance on the front but pencil notations in the lower left corner of the reverse technically downgrade this card to Gd). The balance of the cards range from Pr to Vg-Ex, averaging Gd-Vg. This is a very attractive low- to-medium grade complete set of one of the most desirable boxing issues ever produced. Total 26 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $3,525
