Collection of forty-three 1911 T205 Gold Border cards, highlighted by Hall of Famers Chief Bender, Fred Clarke, Miller Huggins, and Hugh Jennings. All cards have Piedmont or Sweet Caporal backs except for nine Polar Bear, six Hassan, and three Honest Long Cut. Condition of this collection is very modest overall, with all cards falling in the Pr to Gd range. Keys: Bender (Gd+), Clarke (Pr), Frick (Fr), Huggins (Pr), Jennings (Pr), and McAllister (Pr). Despite the modest assigned grades, several of the cards present better and are downgraded due to condition issues on the reverse. This is an ideal collection of cards for the collector who wants real, authentic 1910-era tobacco cards but isn't interested in spending the fortune it would take to acquire them in significantly higher grade. Total: 43 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
