1911 T205 Gold Borders Partial Set (138 Different)

Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $8,700.00

T205 Gold Borders partial set is comprised of 138 different cards (out of the 208 cards in the complete set) from this classic tobacco card issue. All are different, and included are many Hall of Famers, rare cards, and minor leaguers. This is an original "childhood" collection, assembled in 1911 and saved in the family of the original owner. The condition overall ranges from Gd to Vg, with 40% Vg or slightly better (includes a few Vg-Ex), 50% ranging from Good to Gd-Vg, and 10% Fair to Fr-Gd. Some cards have creases, but most have been downgraded solely due to the normal corner and edge wear from handling associated with T205 Gold Borders. Keys: Baker (Vg-Ex), Barger/part "B" (Fr-Gd), Brown (70/30 L/R, otherwise Vg-Ex/Ex), Chase/both ears gold frame ends (Vg-Ex, possible very subtle trim top border), Clarke (Vg), Cobb (Vg), Collins/mouth closed (Fr), Collins/mouth open (Pr-Fr), Graham/Cubs (80/20 L/R, otherwise Vg-Ex/Ex), Grant (Fr-Gd), Griffith (Vg+), Huggins (Fr-Gd), Jennings (Gd), Johnson (G-Vg/Vg), McGraw (Fr), Shean/Cubs (80/20 L/R, otherwise Ex), Speaker (Vg/Vg-Ex), Tinker (Vg-Ex), and Wallace/with cap (Vg-Ex/Ex). Minor Leaguers: Adkins (Gd), Batch (Fr-Gd), Cady (Vg), J. Collins (Gd), Dunn (Vg), Frick (Vg bordering on Vg-Ex), Hanford (Fr-Gd), Lee (Gd), McAllister (Vg), Merritt (Gd), Nee (Gd), and Phelan (Fr). This is a very attractive medium grade T205 partial set featuring many rare cards and fourteen Hall of Famers, including Ty Cobb and Walter Johnson. Total 138 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $8,700.00
