Very attractive trio of Hall of Famers from the 1911 T205 Gold Border set, each graded and encapsulated by SGC. 1) Ty Cobb (American Beauty, GOOD+ 35). Displaying a crisp image, with honest corner rounding, a few light wrinkles, and centering toward the top. 2) Walter Johnson (Sweet Caporal, VG 40). Crisp and clean, with perfect registration and light corner wear. A crease across the upper left corner and chipping on the right edge account for the assigned grade. 3) Christy Mathewson (Polar Bear, GOOD 30). Displaying a striking image, with light corner rounding, centering to the left, and a pair of horizontal creases. The boldly printed reverse is centered entirely to the right and displays some tobacco staining, which is very natural and common for Polar Bear backs. This is a very impressive looking trio of T205 Gold Border key Hall of Famers that would be at home in any quality Hall of Fame, T205, or prewar classic-card collection. Total: 3 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
