Great turn around time from Turkey Red
Posted By: <b>Scott Gross</b><p>Just received these three Turkey Reds. Although they're boxers, I thought the backs would be of interest to all. As you can see, our original owner friend, inscribed both the ordering and receiving dates of his cards:<br /><br /><img src=""><br /><br />The top one ordered 6-5-11, and received 6-19-11: That's a 14 day turn around !!<br />The middle one did even better, 5-9-11 / 5-22-11: Only 13 days (although a p.m. delivery) !!<br /><br />No priority mail, no second day ground, etc. Pretty impressive, to me. So next time you're getting a wee-bit anxious awaiting that next card, just pretend it was coming from the Baseball and Athletic Picture Dept. of Jersery City, NJ .....<br /><br />Oh, and the bottom one ... no order date, but received 7-17-11 ... interesting: Based on past performance, the order date could have been 7-3-11, but that would have been after 6-30-11 deadline. So either ol' Turkey Red was accepting orders after deadline, or there was some shipping back up at the deadline ... I guess we'll never know ...<br /><br />Aside #1: I have nothing against high grade cards (other than can't afford them), but I'll take a "card with character" anytime.<br /><br />Aside #2: Give me a vg/ex cabinet with a pin hole for 1/3 the vg/ex price, and I'll be a <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14> camper everytime.<br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Keith O'Leary</b><p><P>I saw those cards on ebay and thought they were just GREAT pieces of Turkey Red history Scott. I regret not grabbing one just because of those handwritten backs! Extra special cards and looked nice and clean otherwise.</P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>"This offer expires June 30 - 1911". </P><P>&nbsp;</P><P>&nbsp;</P>
