1911 T205 Gold Borders Christy Mathewson PSA NM 7

Starting Bid - $2,000.00, Sold For - $8,700.00

Graded NM 7 by PSA. Classic Christy Mathewson card from the T205 Gold Borders, one of the most popular of all 1910-era tobacco issues, in extraordinarily high-grade condition. The card displays only the slightest hint of white at the extreme tips of the corners, and the most minute hint of chipping to the gold near the center of the extreme edge of the left border; otherwise the easily chipped gold borders are without any white showing whatsoever. Centered 45/55 left to right and 40/60 top to bottom, this striking gem has flawless colors and perfect registration. The reverse of the card is exceptionally bright and clean with crisp, bold blue text. Advertising for Piedmont on reverse. As of this writing, of the 223 T205 Mathewsons graded in the history of PSA, there has been just one MINT 9, six NM-MT 8s, and eleven NM 7s. This is an extraordinary high-grade T205 example of Christy Mathewson, one of baseball's greatest legends, from one of collecting's most classic and condition-sensitive sets. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000/$6,000. SOLD FOR $8,700.00
