(LOT 274)
1911 T3 Turkey Red Cabinets #19 Addie Joss Checklist Back PSA 5 EX - Only 3 PSA Examples Graded Higher!

THE HAIRPIN!!! Presented here is a superb PSA 5 Addie Joss T3 marvel, bested by a mere three PSA specimens! Beloved right-handed HOF twirler Addie Joss is one of the most underrated pitchers in baseball history. His microscopic 1.89 ERA resides as the second-lowest figure in baseball history behind Ed Walsh's 1.82 mark, and his 0.968 lifetime WHIP (walks & hits per nine innings) still stands as the lowest figure in baseball history. Joss cards hold a special place with baseball purists since he tragically passed away on April 14, 1911 at the very tender age of 31, from spinal meningitis. The classic Joss hands-at-chest pose is strikingly similar to his T206 subject, with the robust hues and crystal-clear clarity the highlight of this timeless cabinet. While upper corner wear, border toning and some negligible border soiling spots prevent a higher assessment, it is the overall stellar eye-appeal and lofty PSA 5 grade that are most prevalent!
