Among the T3 Turkey Red cabinet cards, the "action" images are particularly popular with collectors, consistently fetching high prices and creating significant competition at auction, regardless of condition.  Here, we have an absolutely stunning example of "A Close Play At Second," the card featuring a player sliding into second base, just ahead of the tag.  

The card is absolutely beautiful, with four square corners, virtually no surface wear or color issues, and a clean, virtually unblemished reverse.  Closer examination, however, reveals a speck of paper loss, right on the bill of the second baseman's cap.

Bummer.

Still, this is a wonderful card, an image that budget-conscious collectors are unlikely to possess in high grades simply due to the extraordinary competition for these horizontal cards.  An opportunity to obtain such a beautiful card, the technical grade reduced - accurately - to VG+ 45 by SGC as a result of the small speck - is virtually as infrequent as the opportunity to obtain a high-grade copy.  Further, the card has been graded by SGC with such infrequency that just one copy - graded EX 60 - has graded higher than this.  An outstanding opportunity.
