1911 T205 Gold Border Complete Set (208 plus 4 Variations)
Starting Bid - $5,000.00 , Sold For - $12,925.00
Extremely attractive medium-grade complete set (208 plus four variations for a total of 212 cards) of this classic tobacco-card issue, which includes all the great stars of the era and many rarities. The condition ranges from Gd to Vg-Ex/Ex (includes a few Ex, and a very few Fair or slightly lesser), with approximately equal representation at each grade. This set was very carefully assembled by an old-time collector long ago; few cards have creases, and most cards have been downgraded due to normal corner and edge wear. Even among those cards with creases, most creases are minor. Forty-nine cards (24% of the set) have been graded and encapsulated by PSA or SGC (unless otherwise noted).

Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000/$15,000. SOLD FOR $12,925.00
