1909-1911 T206 White Border Hall of Fame PSA Collection (2)
Starting Bid - $800.00, Sold For - $3,818.75
Two high-grade T206 White Border Hall of Famers, both graded EX 5 by PSA: Ty Cobb - Red Background and Christy Mathewson - Dark Cap (Sovereign back). This is a beautiful pair of high-grade cards from the most popular tobacco-card issue of the 1910 era. These two examples each exhibit four square corners, and are crisp and clean, with extremely strong colors. Both of these cards display as pack-fresh gems. Mathewson is centered approximately 65/35 L/R. The Cobb has a particularly large top border, and the slightest degree of off-registration to the black print that in our opinion actually gives this example an especially striking look. The slightest hint of a stain in the upper right corner, impossible to even notice without specifically looking for it because it is so light, is all that we can see that keeps this card from grading Ex-Mt. This is a very attractive pair of two of the key Hall of Famers from this highly prized set, both in exceptionally high grade. Total 2 cards. Reserve $800. Estimate $1,500/$2,500. SOLD FOR $3,818.75
