    1911 T205 Gold Border John McGraw PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop Three, None Higher. In every way this is an exceptionally high-grade specimen from one of tobacco's most picturesque sets, and it features one of baseball's greatest managers - John McGraw. The central portrait is exceptional, made all the more impressive thanks to the tight color registration and quality. With one of baseball's greatest minds being featured it becomes one of the more important cards from the famed tobacco issue. The quality on this cardboard treasure is close to being one-of-a-kind and may never be improved upon. PSA and SGC have encapsulated tens of thousands of T205 cards, over 37,000 by PSA alone. With fewer than 200 rated NM-MT or better, this is among the top 1% of PSA submissions. Graded PSA NM-MT 8. The colors are vibrant, surfaces are blemish-free, the gold metallic border is smooth and glimmers in the light. Edges are high quality with a brief amount of a roughness to the cut seen along the top right segment.
