1911 T205 Gold Border Collection Including Christy Mathewson (23)

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,778

Collection of twenty-two different (plus one duplicate) 1911 T205 Gold Border cards, highlighted by Hall of Famers Fred Clarke, Christy Mathewson, and Ed Walsh. These cards were originally gifted to our consignor decades ago by a neighbor whose husband collected them in his youth. Interestingly, all cards in this collection have a Polar Bear advertising reverse. We have selected the three Hall of Fame cards to be graded by SGC. This collection consists of the following: Beck, Bergen, Camnitz, Clarke (HOF, VG 40), Dooin, Gaspar, Goode, D. Jones, Kroh, Leever, Mathewson (HOF, VG/EX 50), McIntire, Merkle, Meyers, Oakes, Phelps, Stanage, Street, two Titus, Walsh (HOF, GOOD 30), Wilson, and Wiltse. Of the remaining cards, six grade Vg, five Gd, and nine Pr, but all present stronger with bright colors and crisp images, having been downgraded due to varying stages of creasing and wrinkling. This is a very attractive collection of T205 Gold Borders highlighted by a particularly strong example of key Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson. The equivalent SMR value for just the three graded cards is $1,090. Total: 23 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $800+. SOLD FOR $1,778
