1911 M116 Sporting Life Eddie Plank SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $500.00 , Sold For - $1,645.00

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Outstanding high-grade example of Hall of Famer Eddie Plank from the M116 Sporting Life set, one of the most popular of all 1910-era issues. This rare card is popular on many counts, including the fact that the portrait is so similar in appearance to the famous T206 Plank and dates from the same era. This is a gorgeous card. Bright and extremely clean both front and back. The corners are sharp with just the lower right showing the slightest hint of wear under extreme magnification, keeping this card from a higher grade. The reverse is flawless, with the advertising for Sporting Life printed crisply and boldly in blue. The centering is ever so slightly low towards the bottom border. This is a very attractive high-grade example of one of Eddie Plank's most classic cards. The equivalent SMR value for the assigned grade is $1,300. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,645.00
