Description

    1910-11 T3 Turkey Red Cabinets Tris Speaker #36 Checklist Back SGC 60 EX 5. Seen here - in the baseball card realm's version of "JumboTron" or "Ultra Panavision" - is the sublime image of Hall of Famer Tris Speaker. In a manner that space constraints (and a relative lack of printing sophistication) prevent "standard-sized" cards from imitating, Speaker's expression can be readily interpreted by the observer, and his uniform hues - in particular, those deep red socks! - reveal extraordinary texture and depth. Even sight-unseen - given the young outfielder's star performances during his early years with Boston - it's not surprising in the least that a smoker of the day redeemed his coupons for this mini-masterpiece. (The premium offer appears on the reverse side of the card, along with a checklist itemizing Baseball and Boxing subjects from #'s 1 to 75, inclusive.)

    SGC has graded no T3 Speaker higher than 60 EX 5, a tier this fabulous piece shares with just three others within its sixteen-card census. Always challenging in terms of preservation - the "downside" to the dimensions that also allow their glory - this copy concedes very mild evidence of handling at the corners' tips. Its magnificently lithographed illustration is flawless, and its back is unmarked.
