Graded NM/MT 88 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Exceptional ultra high-grade example of Lew Moren from the classic 1910-1911 M116 Sporting Life set. Bright, crisp, and clean, with sharp corners, perfect registration, and centered to the top. The reverse is centered slightly high, with the advertising for Sporting Life boldly printed in black. 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).
