Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,410
Two classic 1910-era tobacco cards of Hall of Famer Tris Speaker, each graded and encapsulated EX by PSA or SGC. 1) T205 Gold Border: Striking colors with near-perfect registration. Well centered,approximately 60/40 left to right, very slight "diamond cut", very little wear to borders, extremely attractive example of one of Tris Speaker's most classic and popular cards. Honest Long Cut ad on back. 2) T206 White Border: This is a particularly important Hall of Fame card in the set, as this is the only T206 pose of Speaker, as well as being his rookie card. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with vibrant colors, even wear to the corners, and perfect registration. There are a couple of small, light stains of toning on the otherwise clean reverse. Sweet Caporal advertisement on the back. Two very attractive Tris Speaker tobacco cards, each a classic, and each an exceptionally strong and attractive example. This is a great-looking pair. Total 2 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,410
