Description

    1909-13 M101-2 Sporting News Near Set (97/100). After going through our data bases and print catalog collection we can say that complete or near complete sets of M101-2 Sporting Life Premiums are almost never made available at public auction. This should come as no surprise one would have to have followed the Sporting News for five years to acquire all 100 fragile paper premiums. Offered is a 97-piece near set with a lineup that is beyond compare. Included are Young/Criger, Mathewson, Cobb, Boston Amer. Team, Lajoie, Chance, Wagner, Jennings, Collins, Speaker, Brown, Joss, Cobb/Wagner, Mack, Plank,Johnson/Street, Philadelphia A's Team, Chicago Cubs Team, Bender, McGraw, Evers, Alexander, New York Giants Team, Wood, etc. all make appearances. Each has been dutifully tapped onto an album page at the corners inside a 12 x 14" scrapbook. The premiums themselves are still supple and range in presentation value from Poor (some have portions missing) to close to the excellent level. Missing O'Toole/Kelly, Gregg and Wheat for completion. A fantastic chance to acquire a near complete set of these fascinating premiums with tremendous star power. There is a duplicate of Leach for a total of 98 premiums.
