PSA Q & A
How tough are Turkey Red Cabinet cards (T3)?
The T3 issue is extremely difficult for a variety of reasons. Number one, due to their enormous size, they were very easily damaged. And secondly, because the T3s make for great display pieces, many people would pin them up for display causing hole damage to the cards. Due to this practice you have to be very wary of restoration. The vast majority of T3s are found in no better than mid grades. In fact, T3s that are found in PSA 5s or 6s would be considered high grades for this issue.
Just for fun, let's NOT talk about the BCS controversy among USC, LSU and Oklahoma. Instead, we'll focus on the positive! Which player in baseball turned in the most amazing single game in 2003?
- Bill Mueller! Who else hit a grand slam home run from each side of the plate in a single game?
- Johnny Damon! He was only the second man in history to bang out three hits in one inning.
- Carlos Delgado! Four home runs in one game (only the 15th time in history).
- Dmitri Young! He cracked five hits in one game, including two triples and two homers.
- Brad Wilkerson! He not only hit for the cycle, he did it in order (single, double, triple, homer). That was only the seventh time in history for a "natural" cycle.
