(LOT 272)
1911 T3 Turkey Red Cabinets #87 Eddie Collins Turkey Red Back PSA 5 EX - Only One PSA Example Graded Higher!

ONLY ONE HIGHER!!! Baseball historians agree that super slick-fielding Eddie Collins resides as one of the greatest all-time second basemen, with his 3,315 hits, .333 lifetime average, and 741 stolen bases truly justifying that notion. Similar to his prestigious diamond stature is this outstanding PSA 5 EX 1911 T3 Cabinet depicting the highly coveted Turkey Red ad back. A POP 7 memento, it has only been bested by a single PSA example! The picturesque Collins batting stance boldly projects an imposing array of sparkling hues, with the only notable blemishes being upper corner wear and a horizontal surface impression situated directly to the right of his belt (extending into the border) that is barely visible to the naked eye. The relatively clean surfaces include a super neat Turkey Red Cigarettes ad back reflecting an image of the original box that housed these related cigarettes. One of Collins most coveted cardboard keepsakes!

MIN BID $1,000
