Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Only three examples grade higher! Exceptional high-grade T205 Gold Border example of Hall of Famer Eddie Collins (open mouth variation). This card is by far the rarer of the two Eddie Collins variations and since the days of Jefferson Burdick has always been recognized as one of the key rare cards of the T205 set. Bright, crisp, and clean, with brilliant colors, and a crisp image. Flawless gold borders, with tiny hints of wear on the corners. The reverse of the card is clean and well centered, with advertising for Piedmont Cigarettes. A tiny abrasion on the reverse affects only two letters of the biography. This is a very sharp T205 key card and Hall of Famer example worthy of any high-quality T205 set or collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
