Default REA auction lot......58 green border T205 cards

Here's a large lot of these featured in Rob's auction several years ago. I thought you guys would like to check it out...... 58 green border T205's


I'll offer this observation for what it's worth. There appears to be quite a number of Minor Leaguer's with green borders. And, in another T205 thread
we arrived at the conclusion that the 12 subjects in the Minor League series were printed very late in 1911.

So what I'm alluding to here is that all these T205's with green borders are possibly the result of American Litho. running out of gold ink in their final
press run(s)......thereby using green ink for the borders (instead of gold).

Just another wild Ted Z theory, so please be kind.

As previously stated it seems most green borders tend to be in lower than normal condition. Curious as to why if they were just the result on an end of production run.

Ted -

Would there be a possibility that the Minor Leaguers were actually printed in early 1912?

Based on the bios of most of the 12 subjects in the Minor League series, we know that they had to have been printed very late in 1911......or, in early 1912 as you are suggesting.

There were a good number of gold-bordered (non-sports) sets issued in 1911. So, it isn't far-fetched to think that some of the T205 production was actually carried over into 1912.

Not sure if this helps: My Daubert shows yellow under the area where the gold was supposed to be.

I think T205s were printed with whatever border color made sense for the print set-up. The 'green' border cards are ones, in most cases, where the gold was never applied. I have also had a few green borders where you could tell there had been gold, but it was almost completely rubbed off. I doubt it was due to soaking, as I've soaked plenty of T205's and the gold borders looked fine afterward.
