The Turkey Red Boxing set comprises 26 cards and were issued in conjunction with the famed T3 Turkey Red baseball cards. These large sized cabinet cards are considered the most attractive boxing set ever produced. This card of James Jeffries was issued about Jeffries was coming out of retirement to face then heavyweight champion Jack Johnson. Jeffries was TKO’d by Johnson, the black champion, who viciously pummeled the former champ. This card is seldom seen, let along in this very collectible grade. It presents well with very lightly rounded corners, great color and good print. The offered example is one of THREE graded and is the highest graded of the three.
