Lot of debate as to whether they should be considered a legit variation. You can find people who will pay something extra for them, but not ton, at least on commons.

Maybe Leon will share the picture of the BLUE border I sold him!

Why are all the green borders in such bad shape ? Are they real ? Are they made to look bad and old like many other forgeries ? Just curious .

I admit that I am not in the know that much on T205, but this question is the only one I have on the thread.

Does anyone have any examples of the same card with the same back that displays the green on one and the yellow/white on the other?

I just have a hard time without not thinking it is the card design and missing the gold pass or it came off without seeing two different examples with the same back. If modern Topps cards are missing the foil pass constantly, missing it in 1911 is logical.

Just a quick question, if two of the same are well known then don't toast me.

My guess, as has been discussed, is the green borders are oxidized to look that way naturally. OF course they could have also missed a color pass too.
