Topps has reintroduced the brand, but there’s nothing like the original T3 cards.
A 1911 T3 Turkey Red tobacco card of Ty Cobb, graded GAI 5, recently sold for $15,500 via a Buy It Now auction on eBay.
Difficult to find without some kind of significant wear, the Turkey Red cabinet cards are among the most popular pre-World War II issues. The oversized "Cabinet" cards measure 5 3/4" x 8" and feature high quality artwork of baseball’s early superstars.
The oversized cards were distributed through a coupon inside Turkey Red brand cigarettes. A completely graded set of 100 Turkey Red cards sold in a Mastro Auction in April for over $176,000.
