In introducing this remarkable, complete set of T205’s, we care to underscore that it is among the finest listings, of any genre, we’ve ever had the privilege to advance. It is complete to include all of the production’s known variations; and further, that all of its 219 elements have earned admirable grades from PSA - the foremost grading authority in the industry. Thereby, this set claims station as the second finest T205 set ever registered with PSA - meriting their aggregate evaluation of 6.23. Suffice it to say, on a very lengthy calendar, this is the pre-eminent Gold Border set poised to change ownership. Twenty-eight of these cards share the highest grade yet awarded by PSA - among these, Doc Adkins (minor leaguer), Baker, Chase (one ear visible), Evers, Hoblitzell (“Cin.” var.), Marquard and Bobby Wallace (no cap, two lines). Here offered, then, is this T205 set as a single unit. We anticipate enthusiastic bidding by virtue of its finalization, its exact uniformity of the choicest grading service ... And, most especially, on its strength as the second finest set recorded by the service.
Jacque Dominique Wilkins, a career 24.8-points-per-game scorer, he is on a much shorter list of greatness at the offensive end. Wilkins packed outrageous talent and mercurial athleticism, a rare combination that made him one of the most difficult match-ups in the league. One of the most lethal offensive re-bounders of his time, the Georgia product was an effective mid-range jump-shooter as well. Yet it was the manner in which "The Human Highlight Film" dominated that separated him from the lead-footed mortals. At 6-foot-7, Wilkins possessed jaw-dropping leaping ability that allowed him to excel against much taller timber close to the basket. A two-time Slam-dunk Contest champion, Wilkins elevated the throw-down to another level. Indeed, in terms of substance and style, 'Nique was on a list of his own.
