1916 M101-5 Sporting News #184 Honus Wagner

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,680

Graded GOOD+ 35 by SGC. Very attractive example of this popular black-and-white card featuring the legendary Hall of Famer Honus Wagner in one of his most classic poses. Do not be fooled by the modest assigned grade! The card is in outstanding condition, presenting as Vg-Ex to Ex from the front. It is bright, crisp, and perfectly clean, with superb photo contrast, no creases, and four strong corners displaying only tiny touches of wear (slightly more to the bottom two). The card is centered slightly to the left. The blank reverse is flawless except for a small area of paper loss in the lower left corner, which is all that keeps it from grading higher. This is a very attractive example with tremendous eye-appeal, dating from the heart of Wagner's great career, an era in which relatively few card sets were issued. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,680
