1911 T205 Gold Border Minor Leaguer PSA-Graded Collection (4)

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,645.00

Collection of four high-grade minor leaguers from the 1911 T205 Gold Border set, highlighted by Hall of Famer Jimmy Collins. All four cards have been graded and encapsulated by PSA: Jimmy Collins (HOF, EX-MT 6), Jimmy Frick (EX 5), Lewis McAllister (EX 5), and Jimmy Phelan (EX-MT 6). Each card is bright and crisp, with deep, vibrant colors, and with square corners displaying light wear. Three have Hassan advertisements on the reverses; Phelan has a Polar Bear back. The T205 Gold Border set is one of card collecting's most popular, as well as condition-sensitive, issues. The easily damaged gold borders make collecting the set in high grade particularly challenging. This is a very attractive collection of four high-grade minor leaguers, a T205 subset of twelve cards that has always been appreciated both for their scarcity and their unique design, assembled by a very discriminating collector with a concern for condition and eye appeal. These four cards would provide upgrades to most high-grade T205 sets. The SMR of $1,745 in total for all four cards appears conservative. Total 4 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,645.00
