1916 M101-4 Sporting News #56 Hap Felsch - Black Sox!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $705

Graded EX 5 by PSA. Highest-graded blank-back example (there are three graded higher with Sporting News advertising backs). This is a striking example of one of the very few baseball cards ever issued of the infamous “Black Sox” member Hap Felsch. There are very few cards of Felsch and his 1916 M101-4 Sporting News rookie card, with good reason, is universally recognized as his most attractive card. By 1919, Felsch was emerging as a top player, and might have even wound up in the Hall of Fame had he not been banned from baseball for his role in throwing the 1919 World Series. Bright and crisp, with just a touch of wear to the corners (predominately the upper left and right), a tiny area of surface wear to the right of his head, and centered slightly towards the bottom right. The blank back is flawless. This is an exceptionally attractive, crisp, clean example of Hap Felsch’s most desirable card. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $705
