(LOT 276)
1911 T3 Turkey Red Cabinets #125 Ed Walsh Turkey Red Back PSA 5.5 EX+ - POP 2; Highest PSA Example!

BIG ED's BEST!!! When asked the question "what pitcher posted the lowest lifetime ERA in baseball history", most would throw out names such as Walter Johnson, Christy Mathewson, or Lefty Grove, just to mention a few of baseball's finest. Incredibly, none of those icons are even close, with "Big Ed" Walsh the proud owner of this prestigious mark via his miraculous 1.82 ERA. Synonymous with that regal record is this best of the best PSA 5.5 EX+ 1911 T3 Walsh Turkey Red ad back marvel that joins a single other PSA example as the finest of its kind! Furthermore, at the time this was written, the PSA Pop Chart listed 30 ad back versions, a scarcer quantity than the 42 encapsulated #125 checklist back T3s. The card itself portrays a compelling Walsh pitching image as Big Ed has most likely released one of his then-legal spitballs, with slight corner wear most likely preventing a higher grade. The pinnacle Walsh subject, it merits a final resting place in any world-class T3 gathering!
