    Description

    A virtually unprecedented full assembly of these rare premiums!

    1910-11 T3 and T9 Turkey Red Cabinet Baseball and Boxing Complete Set (126). The glorious aesthetics of the T3 and T9 issues have earned legions of admirers, but ownership of these special premiums is highly exclusive, and has always been. Only those early collectors intrepid enough to assemble and then redeem by mail a grouping of cigarette coupons before June 30, 1911 earned the prize, and the passage of a century since distribution has whittled that narrow population to a sliver. While the oversized (8x5.75") dimensions are instrumental to the issues' commanding display value, the size of a vintage trading card has always been inversely proportional to its odds of survival.

    Offered is a 126-card complete set of 1910-11 T3 Baseball and T9 Boxing Turkey Red cabinet cards, a true miracle of endurance and collector determination. This beautiful series is rarely (if ever) made available as a complete set featuring both baseball players and boxers. All are standard checklist backs unless noted. A total of 44 cards have been graded by PSA. Includes: Graded - PSA VG-EX+ 4.5: 1 card, #87 Collins; PSA VG-EX 4: 20 cards, #'s 17 Griffith, 42 Young, 59 Murphy, 68 Jeannette, 69 Cross, 80 Bender, 81 Bescher, 84 Browne, 88 Coveleski, 92 Dygert, 93 Fromme, 95 Graham, 99 Johnson, 102 Kling/Turkey Red Back, 103 Konetchy, 106 Lord, 113 (MK) Raymond, 115 Schlei, 116 Schmidt, 117 Schulte, 121 Sullivan; PSA VG 3: 7 cards, #'s 35 Tinker, 36 Speaker, 43 Out At Third, 50 Chief Myers At Bat, 77 Ames (MK), 98 Hofman, 125 Walsh; PSA Good+ 2.5: 7 cards, #'s 6 Chase, 9 Cobb, 18 Jennings, 27 Mathewson, 40 Willis/Pitts and St. Louis; 79 Bell, 108 Merkle; PSA Good 2: 7 cards, #'s Baker (MK)/Turkey Red Back, 5 Crawford, 16 Evers, 23 Lajoie, 24 Mitchell, 29 McConnell, 30 Mullin; PSA Poor 1: 2 cards, 19 Joss, 124 Wallace.
