1911 T3 Turkey Red #1 Mordecai Brown - PSA EX-MT 6 (Highest Graded!)

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $5,925

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. One of only three examples of this significant condition rarity graded at this level with none graded higher. Stunning high-grade example of Hall of Fame pitcher Mordecai Brown from the T3 Turkey Red cabinet-card series. This is by far the finest and highest-grade T3 of Mordecai Brown we have ever seen. Turkey Red cabinets are universally recognized as one of the most beautiful baseball-card issues ever produced. This card is bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, four sharp corners, no creases, and a checklist reverse. While all T3s are difficult to find in high grade, this is especially the case with card #1 Mordecai Brown, which naturally gravitated to the top of sorted stacks and was often subjected to more wear than other cards. Today, almost all T3 Turkey Red set collectors have no choice but to settle for a low-grade example of #1 Mordecai Brown. In fact, a glance at the PSA Population Report for this card shows that more than half of Browns (52%) range from Poor to Vg. Even a Vg-Ex example is a very high grade for Brown. Higher-grade PSA examples are almost never seen, let alone a stunning EX-MT example as presented here. This is a tremendous ultra high-grade example of key HOFer and condition rarity Mordecai Brown, which would be a significant upgrade or addition to virtually any PSA-graded T3 Turkey Red set or collection. SMR value is $3,000. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000++.
SOLD FOR $5,925
