Collection of seven key rarities, including Hall of Fame pitcher Addie Joss, from the popular T205 Gold Border series, each graded and encapsulated VG/EX 50 by SGC. The Joss card, in particular, is one of the highlight cards of the T205 set, as this was issued as a memorial of the legendary Hall of Famer who passed away in April 1911. The collection consists of the following: Dahlen, Donohue, Joss (HOF, bright and crisp colors, perfect registration, even corner wear, centered 65/35 left to right), Raymond, Suggs, Turner, and Wiltse (only right ear). Since the days of Jefferson Burdick, collectors have been well aware that the T205 Gold Borders set includes a group of rare cards that make putting together a complete set particularly challenging. This is a strong, mid-grade collection of seven especially noteworthy T205 rarities, including Hall of Famer Addie Joss. Total 7 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500.
