1911 M116 Sporting Life Walter Johnson PSA NM-MT 8
Starting Bid - $2,500.00 , Sold For - $7,637.50
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. One of only six examples of the M116 Sporting Life of Walter Johnson have been graded at this level, with just four graded higher. Featuring a majestic portrait of the legendary pitcher, the Walter Johnson card is one of the key Hall of Famers in the M116 Sporting Life set. Like his portrait card in T206, this card is universally recognized as one of Johnson's most striking and classic baseball cards. This is a stunning card in all respects. All four corners are perfect and razor-sharp. The card is perfectly clean, both front and back, with snow-white borders. The centering on front is slightly to the right with a very subtle “diamond” cut. The back of the card (which is of the rarer "Over 300 Subjects" variety) is flawless, perfectly clean, with bold blue print, and also beautifully centered, just a hint toward the left. This card would be a worthy addition to even the most advanced world-class vintage-card collection, and a centerpiece to any high-grade M116 Sporting Life, Walter Johnson, or Hall of Fame card collection. SMR value for the assigned grade is $8,000. Disclosure per section 13 of REA's terms and conditions: This lot has been consigned from the personal collection of an executive of REA's internet software service provider. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $7,637.50
