Graded MINT 96 by SGC (submitted by REA). This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Exceptional ultra high-grade example of George Moriarty from the classic 1910-1911 M116 Sporting Life set. This card was preserved for many years by our consignor, who pulled it from an original Sporting Life envelope (many of the other cards from that original envelope are also offered in this auction). Bright, crisp, and clean, with sharp corners, perfect registration, and outstanding centering. Clean and boldly printed reverse. 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 $300. Estimate (open).
