1911 T205 Gold Border Cy Young PSA NM-MT 8
Starting Bid - $5,000, Sold For - $17,775
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Very attractive, extremely high-grade example of T205 Gold Border Hall of Famer Cy Young. Young is one of the key cards in the T205 set, and this is one of the most popular of all Cy Young cards. This outstanding example is a significant condition rarity with only two others graded at this impressive level by PSA (with a single NM-MT+ 8.5 graded higher) out of 248 cards evaluated to date. Even more impressively, only 188 cards (of any subject) have graded NM-MT 8 or higher out of 28,988 cards graded to date by PSA which makes this important Hall of Fame card all the more more noteworthy. Bright, crisp, and clean with perfect registration and vibrant colors. Young's portrait contrasts sharply against the bright green and red background. This is a sharp-looking card, with four square corners displaying only tiny traces of white at the tips. The condition-sensitive gold borders are entirely free of any chipping with only a minute hint in the center of the extreme top edge (almost imperceptible but mentioned for the sake of accuracy). Centered 65/35 left to right and 55/45 top to bottom with a few faint age spots visible along the right border. The Honest Long Cut reverse is perfectly clean and centered slightly to the left. This is a very attractive ultra high-grade example of one of the key Hall of Famers from this extremely condition-sensitive set. SMR value is $27,500.
