1911 M116 Sporting Life New York Giants Collection Including Mathewson (6)

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $948

Collection of six M116 Sporting Life cards, each representing a player from the New York Giants, highlighted by Hall of Famers Christy Mathewson and John McGraw. Two cards are graded by PSA. The collection consists of the following: Crandall (Ex-Mt), L. Doyle (pastel, Ex-Mt, rare "Over 300 Subjects" back), Christy Mathewson (pastel, PSA EX-MT 6 oc, rare "Over 300 Subjects" back), John McGraw (PSA GOOD 2, rare "Over 300 Subjects" back), Murray (pencil mark on back, otherwise Ex), and Snodgrass (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: 6 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $948
