1911 T205 Gold Border Complete Set (208 Plus 5 Variations)
Starting Bid - $4,000.00, Sold For - $19,720.00
Extremely attractive medium-grade complete set (208 plus five variations for a total of 213 cards) of this classic tobacco card issue which includes all the great stars of the era and many rarities. The condition ranges from Gd to Vg-Ex/Ex (includes a few Ex or better, and a very few Fair), with approximately equal representation at each grade. This is a very carefully assembled set put together by an old time collector long ago, with few cards having creases, and most cards downgraded due to normal corner and edge wear. Even among those cards with creases, most creases are minor. We have selected eleven cards from the set to be graded and encapsulated by PSA. Keys: Baker (PSA EX 5), Barger/part "B" (Vg-Ex), Bender (Vg-Ex, possible very slight trim), Bresnahan/mouth closed (PSA EX 5), Bresnahan/mouth open (PSA EX 5), Brown (Vg-Ex/Ex), Chance (Vg-Ex), Chase/left ear (Vg-Ex), Cicotte/"Black Sox" (Ex), Clarke (Vg), Cobb (PSA Good 2, the card has some surface scratches on the reverse but no paper loss and appears in Excellent condition), Collins/mouth closed (Vg-Ex), Collins/mouth open (Vg/Vg-Ex), Daubert (PSA EX 5), Donohue (Vg), Doughtery/white sock (Gd-Vg), Duffy (Vg), Evers (Vg), Fisher (Vg), Ford/white (Gd-Vg), Graham/Cubs (Fr-Gd), Grant (Gd-Vg), Griffith (Gd-Vg), Harmon/left ear (Vg-Ex/Ex), Hoblitzell/name incorrect (Gd), Huggins (Vg), Jennings (Vg), Johnson (touch of paper loss on the right border and on the reverse otherwise Vg with no creases), Joss (Gd), Karger (Vg), Kleinow (Vg-Ex/Ex), Marquard (PSA EX 5), Mathewson (PSA Good 2, a few surface wrinkles on the front, otherwise in Vg to Vg-Ex condition), McGraw (Vg), Raymond (Vg-Ex), Rowan (Ex), Scanlan (Vg), Shean/Cubs (Vg), Speaker (PSA EX 5), Suggs (Gd), Sweeney (Fr-Gd), Tinker (Vg-Ex/Ex), Turner (Vg-Ex/Ex), Wagner (Vg-Ex/Ex), Wallace/with cap (Vg), Wallace/no cap, one line of 1910 stats (PSA GOOD 2), Wallace/no cap - two lines of 1910 stats (Fr-Gd), Walsh (Vg), Wheat (Vg-Ex), White/Pirates (G-Vg), Wilhelm (Vg-Ex), Wiltse/right ear (Gd) and Young (PSA VG 3).
