1916 M101-4 Sporting News SGC-Graded Collection (74)

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,444

Collection of seventy-four different cards from the M101-4 Sporting News set, each professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC. The offered collection represents thirty-seven percent of a complete 1916 M101-4 Sporting News set! The M101-4s, along with the closely related M101-5 set, are two of the most highly regarded and comprehensive baseball-card sets of the era. This is a very sharp-looking collection of cards, with even the more modestly-graded examples presenting at a level superior to their assigned grades. The collection consists of the following: NM+ 86 (3 cards): #61, 127, and 168. NM 84 (4 cards): #35, 39, 115, and 119. EX/NM+ 82 (4 cards): #62, 163, 166, and 170. EX/NM 80 (7 cards): #95, 100, 125, 155, 160, 177, and 187. EX+ 70 (8 cards): #76, 78, 92, 159, 162, 171, 173, and 193. EX 60 (18 cards): #6, 22, 29, 31, 46, 83, 88, 110, 114, 122, 134, 140, 156, 158, 165, 172, 189, and 197. VG/EX+ 55 (15 cards): #7, 19, 60, 93, 94, 109, 117, 129, 133, 139, 167, 183, 185, 190, and 196. VG/EX 50 (4 cards): #99, 118, 120, and 131. VG+ 45 (3 cards): #3, 25, and 101. VG 40 (5 cards): #33, 104, 121, 179, and 200. GOOD 30 (1 card): #30. FAIR 20 (1 card): #132. Authentic (1 card): #96. All cards are blank-backed. This is an extremely attractive collection and represents a tremendous foundation for the assembly of a complete set of these classic prewar cards. The equivalent SMR value (factoring in the thirty-four half grades at the lower whole-grade level and excluding the one card graded "Authentic") is $3,980. Total: 74 cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000++. SOLD FOR $4,444
