No baseball card could ever surpass the brilliant artistic designs and color patterns of the highly sought 1911 Turkey Red cabinets. These oversized premiums were obtained by mailing in coupons from Turkey Red, Old Mill and Fez brand cigarettes, and are considered by most vintage card experts as the most attractive and exquisite cards ever produced in our treasured hobby. “Art meets baseball card” as the mesmerizing color schemes and frame like borders come together to create, by far, the closest specimen the cardboard industry has to compare to the world of prestigious fine art. Presented here is one of the set’s most prestigious ballplayers and one of baseball’s five original Hall of Fame inductees, the immortal Christy Mathewson. This collectors grade Turkey Red of the beloved Christy Mathewson won't cost you five figures.
