1911 T205 Gold Borders Christy Mathewson PSA EX 5

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,645.00

Graded EX 5 by PSA. Stunning Christy Mathewson card from the T205 Gold Borders, one of the most popular of all 1910-era tobacco issues, in exceptionally high grade. This may be the most striking PSA EX 5 Mathewson we have ever seen. This is a gorgeous and conservatively graded card that could easily be mistaken for Ex-Mt. 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 virtually flawless. Very well centered 55/45 left to right, this striking gem has flawless colors and perfect registration. The reverse of the card is also exceptionally bright and clean with crisp, bold blue text. Advertising for Piedmont on reverse. The card has been downgraded by PSA due to the slightest hint of a surface wrinkle in the lower left corner, which is virtually undetectable without a trained eye or high-powered magnification. This is a very attractive example of the legendary Christy Mathewson from one of collecting's most popular and condition-sensitive sets. The SMR value is $1,850. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $1,645.00
