Graded 50 VG/EX 4 by SGC. This T205 "Gold Border" card of the incomparable Walter Johnson is an exceptional treasure. Its borders are deeply metallic in presentation with none of the edge chipping found on even the most minimally handled specimens from this beautiful issue. Coloration of the image and its surrounding graphics are intense and magnetic. All four of the card's corners are sharply well-defined, with touches of wear only at their tips. A solidly inked, blue-toned "Polar Bear" advertisement adorns the reverse, and its scattered and generally inoffensive spots of amber staining (unique to inserts packaged with the Polar Bear brand's scrap tobacco) constitute the attractive item's only meaningful grading liabilities. With its technically ascribed Very Good to Excellent condition, but an obverse appearance that's substantially stronger, this is a Hall of Fame T205 to be cherished and admired.
