1911 T205 Gold Border Tris Speaker

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,058

Graded EX+ 70 by SGC. Tris Speaker card from T205 Gold Borders, one of the most popular of all 1910-era tobacco issues, in exceptionally high-grade for this issue. Speaker has far fewer cards than many other major Hall of Famers of the era, and his T205 with good reason is universally recognized as among his most highly regarded. This is a very strong example. Crisp and clean, the card displays only the slightest hint of white at the extreme tips of the corners, and is centered to the right. The easily damaged gold borders have no chipping. The portrait has particularly bold, flawless colors and perfect registration. The reverse has advertising for Hassan Cigarettes and is centered to the far bottom left. This is a very attractive high-grade example of one of the key Hall of Famers from this extremely condition-sensitive set. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,058
