Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Hall of Famer Mordecai Brown from the T3 Turkey Red cabinet-card series. This card is bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, even wear on the 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. Turkey Red cabinets are universally recognized as one of the most beautiful baseball-card issues ever produced. This is a very attractive example of what is perhaps the most impressive card ever issued of this Hall of Fame pitcher. SMR value is $1,100. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $948
