1911 T205 Gold Border Walter Johnson

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,080

Graded VG/EX+ 55 by SGC (submitted by REA). The T205 Gold Border Hall of Famer Walter Johnson is one of the key cards in the T205 set. We have found this card to be considerably scarcer than many other cards in the set, and the population reports support this observation. The T205 Walter Johnson is also considered by many to be one of his most attractive cards. The offered card is one of the highlights of a completely untouched collection of tobacco cards consigned to this auction. The card has virtually perfect registration and vibrant colors. Johnson's portrait contrasts sharply against the bright red background. This is a sharp-looking card, with light touches of wear on the corners and virtually flawless gold borders. Centered very slightly to the left, with only a tiny, almost imperceptible surface wrinkle on the left border, which is all that keeps this card from grading Ex or Ex+. Entirely clean reverse featuring advertising for Piedmont Cigarettes. This is a very attractive example of one of the key cards from the classic T205 set.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,080
