1911 T205 Gold Borders Ty Cobb SGC EX 60

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $3,770.00

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Classic Ty Cobb card from T205 Gold Borders, one of the most popular of all 1910-era tobacco issues, in exceptionally high-grade for this issue. The card displays only the slightest hint of white at the extreme tips of the corners, and the most minute hint of chipping to the gold at the center of the extreme edge of the left border; otherwise the easily chipped gold borders are without any white whatsoever showing. Striking colors with near perfect registration. The 60/40 left to right centering and minor toning on the reverse, primarily in the lower right, keep this beauty from a higher grade. Advertising for Piedmont on reverse. The card displays better than suggested by the technically accurate grade of Excellent. This is a very attractive and high-grade example of the key card from this extremely condition-sensitive set. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,770.00
