Although the 1911 T205 Gold Borders have long taken a back seat to the more prominent T206 series, the ornate set has recently picked up steam in the pre-war hobby. Presented is a 1911 T205 Gold Border starter set of (76) cards. This gathering contains more than one-third of the challenging edition and is comprised of common players, a tough Barger variation, and, with the exception of (5) Hassan, (3) Honest and (4) Polar Bear backs, contains either Piedmont or Sweet Caporal advertising reverses. The composite breakdown for this selection is 12% (VG-EX to EX), 39% (VG), 14% (GD), 18% (low-grade) and 17% (trimmed). For a complete list of cards, please visit our website.
