Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Wilhelm is one of the particularly rare cards in the T205 Gold Border set. There are actually two variations to this card, relating to the text on the reverse (the variations are checklisted in The Standard Catalog as 202a and 202b). Presented here is the rarer of the two, known as the "Suffered" variation, which is one of the most difficult to find of all T205 Gold Borders. This variation has the full word “Suffered” in the 18th line of the biography (the other variation is missing the letter "r" in the word "Suffered"). The card is perfectly centered with bold color and a strong image. The corners show moderate even wear and only the right edge exhibits noticeable chipping. Free of any major creases or wrinkles. Hassan advertising reverse. This is a very attractive example of this rarity and a worthy addition to any T205 Gold Border master set. Reserve $500. Estimate (open).
