Exceptional high-grade collection of five Hall of Famers from the 1916 M101-4 and M101-5 Sporting News sets, each graded and encapsulated NM 84 by SGC. Four cards are M101-4 and one card is M101-5 Sporting News. The collection consists of the following: #10 Dave Bancroft RC, 13 Chief Bender, 86 Miller Huggins, 109 Rabbit Maranville (M101-5), and 144 Wilbert Robinson. Four cards have blank backs and one card has the "Sporting News" advertisement printed on reverse (Huggins). This is a very sharp-looking high-grade collection of these popular real-photo cards, composed exclusively of Hall of Famers. Many collectors think this issue, compared to other sets of the era, represents one of the best values among classic vintage cards, especially regarding Hall of Famers. The equivalent SMR value in the assigned grades is $2,265. Total: 5 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
