Description

Often overshadowed by the iconic 1909-1911 T206 White Borders, the 1911 T205 Gold Border series is an important designation in its own right. Framed by a delicate perimeter, the colorful lithography, ornate card designs and intricately crafted portraits are second to none. Painstakingly collected one card at a time, the offered 1911 T205 Gold Border complete set of (208) cards is a paramount acquisition. Nearly 97% of this 99 year-old base edition (201/208) are professionally graded by SGC, PSA and other grading services. Additionally, the inclusion of eight challenging variations (all graded, 209 total) makes master set completion more probable. With a handful of exceptions, the reverses are clean and display more common advertising reverses. The condition breakdown for the graded cards follow: SGC: (144 cards) with (2) SGC 70, (8) SGC 60, (31) SGC 50, (42) SGC 40, (42) SGC 30, (17) SGC 20, (2) SGC 10; PSA: (61 cards) with (1) PSA 7 (mc), (3) PSA 5 (one qualifier), (32) PSA 4 (one qualifier), (16) PSA 3, (8) PSA 2, (1) PSA 1; Other Grading Companies: (4 cards) with (1) GAI 5.5, (1) GAI 3, (1) GAI 2.5 and (1) SCD EX-MT 6.
