1911 T205 Gold Border George Bell - Broad Leaf Back
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840
Graded EX 60 by SGC. Extremely desirable sample card of George Bell (Brooklyn Superbas) featuring the scarce Broad Leaf Cigarettes advertising reverse. Broad Leaf backs are encountered with much less frequency than the standard advertising backs found within the T205 (Piedmont, Sweet Caporal, and Hassan) set. In fact, we have offered only a handful of Broad Leaf backs from these two sets combined in the last twenty years (far fewer than the number of rare Broad Leaf backs from the T206 set). The offered card is stunning, with brilliant colors, a crisp image, and flawless gold borders. Only light touches of wear at three of the corners (slightly more in the upper left) keep this card from grading higher. The important advertising reverse is boldly printed and clean. A superb example featuring this rare advertising back from the classic T205 set. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $840
