1911 T205 Gold Border Christy Mathewson PSA EX-MT 6

Starting Bid - $1,000.00 , Sold For - $3,231.25

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Classic Christy Mathewson card from the T205 Gold Border, one of the most desirable of all prewar tobacco issues, in exceptionally high-grade condition. 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 near the lower portion of the extreme edge of the right border; otherwise the easily chipped gold borders are without any white showing whatsoever. Centered 45/55 left to right and 70/30 top to bottom, this striking gem has flawless colors and perfect registration. The reverse of the card is bright and clean with crisp, bold blue text. Advertising for Polar Bear on reverse. As of this writing, of the 328 T205 Mathewsons graded in the history of PSA, there has been just one MINT 9, seven NM-MT 8s, eleven NM 7s, and twenty-one EX-MT 6s. This is an magnificent high-grade T205 example of Christy Mathewson, one of baseball's greatest legends, from one of collecting's most classic and condition-sensitive sets. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $3,231.25
