Graded MINT 9 by PSA (submitted by REA). This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Exceptional ultra high-grade example of Barney Pelty from the classic 1910-1911 M116 Sporting Life set. Bright, crisp, and clean, with sharp corners and outstanding centering. Clean and boldly printed reverse. A grade of MINT is almost unheard of for any 1910-era card, and only two percent of all M116s submitted to PSA have ever graded MINT 9 (plus two GEM MINT 10s). Many collectors consider M116 to represent one of the era's most exceptional values. In terms of the number of players featured, M116 is the second most substantial set of the 1910 era featuring Major Leaguers, trailing only T206. Despite being so similar in design to their T206 counterparts, M116s in general are actually far rarer. This is a superb example that would be a worthy addition to any high-quality complete set. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
