#8026 - 1911 T205 Gold Border Frank Chance - PSA NM-MT 8 Estimate: $4,000+

Graded by PSA NM-MT 8. Incredible card of Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer Frank Chance, iconic first baseman and player/manager for the team. The 1911 T205 tobacco issue is so fragile with the gold edges and corners, which easily can flake off with minimal handling. Light touch of white along the upper right corner, with the other three corners exhibiting their original gold tips. Clean edges and surfaces with bold color and a crisp image.

The fact a card over 100 years old with this fragile nature can survive in this condition is a miracle in itself, coupled with the fact Frank Chance was at the height of his game in 1911 and one of the more popular players of his day. Out of over 400 T205 Chance cards submitted to PSA, this is one of only FOUR examples at his grading tier, with only a single example grading higher.
