Circa 1910 Hall of Famer Card Collection Including T205 Mathewson (6)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,997.50
Collection of six cards of Hall of Famers, all dating from the 1910 era, from three different highly regarded issues, highlighted by a T205 Gold Border of Christy Mathewson. Four of the six cards have been submitted by REA to be graded and encapsulated by PSA: 1-3) 1911 M116 Sporting Life (3 cards): Fred Clarke - Pastel (GOOD 2. We have looked this card over very closely and can only conclude that there must be a flaw that we cannot see when the card is encapsulated in the holder. This card has a Near Mint appearance). Sam Crawford - Pastel (GOOD 2. Bright and clean, with four square corners, flawless registration, and centered slightly to the left. Downgraded by PSA due to four tiny areas of paper loss on reverse, most likely from being removed from a scrapbook long ago). Rube Waddell - Pastel (EX-MT 6. Perfectly clean, both front and back, four sharp corners, centered slightly towards the bottom). 4) 1911 T205 Gold Borders: Christy Mathewson (VG-EX 4. Bright and crisp, with very little chipping along the gold borders, and a little corner wear. No creases. Perfectly clean reverse with Sweet Caporal ad and bold red text). 5-6) 1911 T201 Double Folders (2 cards): Walter Johnson (Vg-Ex due to a tiny corner crease in the lower right, but otherwise the card has an Excellent appearance). Christy Mathewson (Bright and clean, no creases, hint of corner wear. Vg-Ex). This is a very attractive group of six quality cards of Hall of Famers from three classic 1910-era issues. Total 6 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,997.50
