(LOT 273)
1911 T3 Turkey Red Cabinets #1 Mordecai Brown Checklist Back PSA 6 EX-MT – POP 3; Highest PSA Example!

HIGHEST GRADED BROWN!!! The oversized state of the 1911 T3 Cabinets ultimately resulted in extreme condition sensitivity, with this extraordinary PSA 6 EX-MT portrayal of the immortal Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown joining only two other examples as the finest of its kind! Brown achieved his iconic "Three Finger" nickname when, as a young farm boy, he accidentally stuck his hand in a corn shredder, severely cutting his index finger and paralyzing his pinky finger. Fortunately for Brown, his injured hand eventually seemed to be the primary reason for the uncanny movement on his pitches, leading him to 239 career wins and a spectacular 2.06 lifetime ERA. As the #1 subject in the T3 set, it comes as little surprise that a PSA 6 specimen stands as the best of the best, with the highlight of this time-tested marvel being Mordecai's classic pitching pose revealing his deformed right hand, super clean surfaces, fine edging and a breathtaking array of sparkling hues!
