Author of a 22-8 record with the World Champion Giants of 1905, hurler Red Ames amassed 183 wins over his 17-year career with New York, Cincinnati, St. Louis and Philadelphia.  Yet another stunning Turkey Red cabinet from a collection we are proud to feature in our winter and spring auction, this example, graded EX 60 by SGC, boasts the typical rich color featured on most of the cards from this group.  Virtually flawless with the exception of mild corner wear that reduces the card's technical grade, it is uncommon to find a Turkey Red with such a pristine image.  

The wear on both the surface and the reverse of this card is virtually nonexistent, the card's bold, vivid Turkey Red ad practically jumping off the back.  Due to their size, Turkey Reds are particularly susceptible to display-related damage, they are frequently found with torn corners, pinholes, and back damage from being mounted on walls and in scrapbooks.  This example exhibits no such flaws.  The beauty of this card, but the accuracy of its grade, serves only to illustrate the wide variance in eye appeal that can be exhibited by a card with an "EX" grade.
