    1910-11 M116 Sporting Life Frank Baker (Blue Back) PSA Mint 9 - Pop 1, None Higher! The king of swing during the Deadball Era, Frank Baker was aptly nicknamed "Home Run" by his contemporaries. After four Home Run titles, three World Series and four American League Championships, "Home Run" Baker would sit out the entire 1915 season in a contract dispute with Connie Mack, effectively ending his Hall of Fame service to the Philadelphia Athletics. The Yankees picked up the star and he would retire in Yankees pinstripes. Offered is the finest example on record of his M116 Sporting Life card, this is a "Blue Back" ad variation. It is hard to believe such exceptional quality has been maintained for over a century. The lack of any flaws has resulted in a PSA Mint 9 rating. It is a "Pop One-of-One with None Higher!" condition rarity.
