1911 T205 Gold Border Collection Including Cobb and Mathewson (61)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,231

Collection of sixty-one 1911 T205 Gold Border cards (comprised of forty-nine different plus twelve duplicates) highlighted by six Hall of Famers including Ty Cobb and Christy Mathewson, and many rare cards in the set. 70% range from Pr to Vg (averaging Gd), 30% trimmed. This is technically a low-grade group but includes many very attractive cards (including some very strong cards with a very slight trim). Highlights: three Batch/minor leaguer (all trimmed), Brown (possible slight trim, otherwise Gd), Chase/both ears (Pr), Chase/frame extends (trimmed), two Cicotte (Black Sox, Gd and Fr), Cobb (trimmed, otherwise Ex-Mt), Collins/mouth open (Pr), Dougherty/red sock variation (Gd-Vg), Ford/white cap (possible slight trim, otherwise Vg), Gray/no stats (Fr), Hoblitzell/Cin. after 2nd 1908-stats (Vg), Huggins (Gd), Lee/minor leaguer (possible slight trim, otherwise Ex), Mathewson (Pr), two Merritt/minor leaguer (Gd and Pr), Phelan/minor leaguer (Pr), Rowan (trimmed, otherwise Vg-Ex), Scanlan (Pr), Speaker (SGC Authentic, slight trim, otherwise Ex-Mt), two Wiltse/right ear (Pr and SGC Authentic, slight trim). The forty-nine different cards in this collection of T205 Gold Borders, which represent 24% of a complete set, could serve as a foundation for the building of a low- to mid-grade complete set of this classic tobacco-card issue. Total 61 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $3,231
