A very scarce example of a high grade Turkey Red cabinet with the scarce "no ad" reverse.
 
At the start of the 1910 season, Dodgers southpaw Nap Rucker was posed to begin the best three-year stretch of his career, posting win totals of 17, 22, and 18 between 1910 and 12.  Finishing his career with a lifetime ERA of just 2.42, Rucker goes down as one of the better left-handed pitchers in Dodgers history.  

This gorgeous Turkey Red cabinet of Rucker, graded EX 5 by PSA, is virtually flawless for a T3.  Four square corners exhibit just the slightest touches, and the surface is unblemished, its deep, rich color appearing like new.  

The card reverse is clean and devoid of the Turkey Red ad back on the reverse, an example of the more scarce "No Ad Back" that features the entire 1-76 checklist.  The lack of a Turkey Red ad or redemption offer makes the reverse cleaner and more bold, an interesting back variation to one of the hobby's most popular and highly sought after sets.

Population Data:
PSA Population: 52 total graded, 11 at this level, 9 higher
SGC Population: 13 total graded, 3 at this level, 0 higher*

*Please note that SGC categorizes T3s with checklist backs based on whether or not they contain the offer.  All of the 13 Rucker cards graded by SGC contain the offer.  It is unknown how many of the Rucker cards graded by PSA, if any, are lacking the offer as this one is.
