Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by PSA. An attractive mid-grade T205 Gold Border example of Hall of Famer Eddie Collins (open mouth variation). This card is by far the rarer of the two Eddie Collins variations and since the days of Jefferson Burdick has always been recognized as one of the key rare cards of the T205 set. Bright, crisp, and clean, with brilliant colors, and a crisp image. Virtually flawless gold borders, with light wear on the corners, and centering slightly to the left. The reverse of the card is also perfectly clean, centered to the bottom right with bold blue text, advertising for Piedmont Cigarettes. This is a very attractive T205 key card and Hall of Famer example worthy of any high-quality T205 set or collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
