1911 M116 Sporting Life Honus Wagner - Pastel
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,560
Extremely attractive, modestly graded example of one of the most famous cards of the 1910 era: Hall of Famer Honus Wagner from the very popular M116 Sporting Life series. This card is popular on many counts, including the fact that the portrait is so similar in appearance to the famous T206 Wagner and dates from the same era. Honus Wagner, of course, is one of the key cards of the series. Encapsulated as "Authentic" by PSA, the offered card appears to have been carefully soaked out of an album. The card is crease-free, with a crisp image of Wagner set against a pastel background, outstanding centering, and light wear to the corners (more in the upper right). Boldly printed blue advertising on the reverse for Sporting Life, with light toning from the album removal process. This is a very attractive yet relatively affordable example of one of Honus Wagner's most classic cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,560
