1916 M101-5 Sporting News SGC-Graded Collection (62)

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,252

Collection of sixty-two different cards from the M101-5 Sporting News set, each professionally graded and encapsulated by SGC. The offered collection represents thirty percent of a complete 1916 M101-5 Sporting News set. The M101-5s, along with the closely related M101-4 set, are two of the most highly regarded and comprehensive baseball-card sets of the era. This is an extremely attractive group of cards with flawless real-photo images. Even the more modestly-graded examples present at a level better than suggested by their assigned grades. The collection consists of the following: EX/NM 80 (7 cards): #60, 64, 80, 104, 118, 147, and 198. EX+ 70 (9 cards): #62, 92, 96, 99, 102, 117, 124, 152, and 157. EX 60 (16 cards): #11, 46, 47, 48, 61, 63, 69, 73, 97, 113, 127, 141, 160, 162, 168, and 183. VG/EX+ 55 (15 cards): #13, 17, 38, 44, 65, 67, 70, 79, 111 Marsans, 121, 135, 165, 173, 191, and 199. VG/EX 50 (1 card): #18. VG+ 45 (4 cards): #58, 72, 94, and 119. VG 40 (4 cards): #24, 78, 132, and 138. GOOD+ 35 (2 cards): #93 and 156. GOOD 30 (1 card): #98. FAIR 20 (3 cards): #10, 50, and 129. All cards are blank-backed. This is an outstanding collection that could serve as a significant foundation for the assembly of a complete set or provide upgrades to any set or collection of these classic prewar cards. The equivalent SMR value (factoring in the seventeen half grades at the lower whole-grade level) is $2,418. Total: 62 cards.
Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++. SOLD FOR $2,252
