Color Printed card, 5-3/4" 8", issued for boxer "JOHNNY COULON" in a ring poise, card #54. The reverse provides the listing of the available cards, #1-#76 as well the requirements to get them. Fine. c1911 Turkey Red Baseball Series 1 backs are available in three different options. In the earliest version, the checklist shows a checklist for cards #1-75, while another features cards with an updated #1-76 checklist. Both of these versions showcase a cigarette coupon add at the bottom. Although mostly associated with Turkey Red Cigarettes, the T3 cards were also available through Old Mill or Fez Cigarettes. The main difference between the three brands is that one T3 card could be redeemed for ten coupons from Turkey Red, but the other two brands required 25 coupons for one card. Collectors could specify the card they wanted from the checklist. John Frederic Coulon (1889-1973) was the World Bantamweight Champion from March 6, 1910, when he wrested the crown from England's Jim Kendrick, until June 3, 1914, when he was defeated by Kid Williams in Vernon, California. After boxing he developed an act whereby he could not be lifted and became known as the UNLIFTABLE MAN.
