The Pirates burley right-handed twirler Kirby White has seldom looked better than in this stellar 1911 T205 Gold Border PSA 5 offering that has amazingly been bested by a mere 6 specimens! Rarely do mid-grade cards sit near the upper echelon of the “pop” chart, but this is one of those few and far between examples that simply doesn’t surface in high grade. A pristine like illustration is highlighted by Kirby’s classic portrait pose affixed between four atypically clean gold borders. The image dies moderately favor the right edge, no obtrusive surface flaws are evident, and the revere side “HASSAN” Cigarette advertisement is super clean. With only 6 examples of this desirable Gold Border memento available, we would expect even elite collectors to make a strong effort to capture this captivating mid-grade tobacco gem!
