1916 M101-4 Sporting News #164 George Sisler Rookie - SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,763

Graded NM 84 by SGC. Highest-graded example! Rookie card of Hall of Famer George Sisler from M101-4 Sporting News series with advertising for The Sporting News printed on the back. Perfectly clean, both front and back, with four sharp corners, bright and crisp image, and a boldly printed advertisement on the reverse. The Sporting News advertisement on the reverse makes this card all the more desirable to many collectors; while this card was issued with a blank reverse or with one of many different regional advertisements on the reverse, the set has always been referred to as issued by The Sporting News in honor of its most prominent sponsor. This is an extraordinary and ideal high-grade example, which would be a highlight for any serious George Sisler or prewar Hall of Fame card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,763
