Frank "Wildfire" Schulte played right field for the Cubs in 1911, midway through a 15 year career spent mostly with the Cubs.  A power hitter in his day, Schulte belted 21 home runs and drove in 107 runs in 1911, leading the league in both categories.  

Pictured on his T3 card in front of a stadium filled with fans, Schulte's card has been graded EX+ 70 by SGC.  With some modest surface and edge wear, this card is not as visually striking as many of the other Turkey Reds featured in this auction, yet it is still accurately graded, with a very bold image and strong visual appeal.  The Turkey Red ad on the reverse is strong, with very little wear.

The result is the highest-graded Schulte with the Turkey Red back in the hobby.  It is also a very scarce card, one of the lowest-population cards in the set, very scarce in higher grade.  Indeed, except for this example, no specimens of this card have graded higher than EXCELLENT.
