The Grammostola species you're thinking of is G. iheringi, but those have a very prominent mirror patch on the abdomen that yours is lacking. T. vagans also have more noticeable patella striping like yours has. T. vagans also have lighter setae on the trochanters like yours does. Compare to this one:
