1911 M110 Sporting Life Cabinet Frank Chance

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $2,644

Graded GOOD 30 by SGC. Very attractive example of Hall of Famer Frank Chance from the exceptionally rare M110 Sporting Life cabinet-card set issued in 1911. This card features a striking image of Chance in a throwing pose. This is one of six M110s that were among the highlights of a small but remarkable childhood collection of our consignor’s grandfather that included a complete set of six M110s and eight M116s. These cards have been carefully stored by the family since 1911! All are new to the organized collecting world and are presented in a total of eight lots in this auction. M110s are similar in design to, but far rarer than, the contemporary T3 Turkey Red cabinets. These cards have always been revered for their extreme rarity as well as their impressive design and distinctive style. This is a beautiful card! Technically graded GOOD by SGC, but clearly with a stronger appearance. The front of the card has very slight corner wear, a hint of foxing in the border in the lower left, and a few light creases in the corners. The reverse has a few tiny surface abrasions which do not detract from the integrity of the advertisement on the reverse (from removal from a photo-album page designed with strips of very light adhesive). Very conservatively graded GOOD by SGC. This card would make a significant addition to any world-class collection of prewar cards. Dimensions: 5-5/8 x 7-1/2 inches. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+.
