1911 M116 Sporting Life Collection Including Wagner and Mathewson (12)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $4,406.25

Collection of twelve different M116 Sporting Life cards with six Hall of Famers including Honus Wagner and Christy Mathewson. Six cards have been graded by PSA. Though a few of these cards were, in our opinion, graded by PSA generously (as noted), this is a very substantial lot with numerous key Hall of Famers. Keys: Bender (pastel, Vg-Ex appearance, rejected by PSA for "Minimum Size Requirement"), Chance (pastel, PSA EX 5, light pinpoint staining in upper right; we grade this card Vg), E. Collins (pastel, PSA NM 7; nice looking card but we grade this card Ex/Ex-Mt), Jennings (pastel, PSA VG-EX 4, light stain in upper right; we grade this card Vg), Mathewson (pastel, PSA VG-EX 4, numerous light pinpoint stains; we grade this card Good), and Wagner (pastel, PSA GOOD 2). Non-Hall of Famers: Chase (pastel, PSA EX-MT 6, nice card), H. Davis (pastel, Ex-Mt), Dooin (pastel, Ex), L. Doyle (pastel, Good, numerous pinpoint stains), Kling (pastel, Ex), and McQuillan (Vg-Ex). Many collectors consider M116 to represent one of the era's most exceptional values. Despite being so similar in design to their T206 counterparts, M116s in general are actually far rarer, though are of a comparable value. Total 12 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $4,406.25
