1911 T205 Gold Border William Bransfield - Rare Hindu Back!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,800

Graded VG 3 by PSA. Extremely attractive and rare example of William Bransfield (Philadelphia Phillies) from the T205 Gold Border set featuring a Hindu advertising reverse. Only Drum can compete with Hindu in terms of rarity among T205 backs. This is the first T205 Hindu back we have offered since 2010 when a remarkable group of six, including Walter Johnson, realized $8,225 as lot #325. The offered card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with no creases, bold color, and even wear to the corners. The reverse is perfectly clean, which is ideal for a rare T205 advertising-back example. This is a very attractive extreme rare-back example from one of the premier tobacco-card sets of the era. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,800
