|"The most beautiful baseball cards ever produced."
|Welcome to my T3 Turkey Red website! Please feel free to add this page
to your favorites and keep visiting, as we'll attempt to update the page
From mid-1910 through mid-1911, packs of Turkey Red brand cigarettes
(as well as Old Mill and Fez) contained coupons redeemable for a
full-color, cabinet sized (5 3/4" X 8") premium picturing one of 126
different baseball players and athletes (boxers). The checklist noted 100
baseball players and 26 boxers. The cards themselves have survived as
wonderful pieces of art and history.
For the last several years, I have been an avid collector of Turkey Red
baseball cards and related materials. Going forward, this site will
highlight the cards themselves along with loads of information on the
various topics associated with the set.
In addition, I'll highlight a few other different Turkey Red sets issued as
inserts into tobacco packs at about the same time T3s were being
produced. Highly attractive and collectible in their own right.
I continue to buy and sell T3s in my quest to complete a master set of all
possible fronts and backs. If you have any questions, comments or
suggestions or are looking to buy or sell, feel free to reach me at my
