    1910-11 M116 Sporting Life Napoleon Lajoie, Blue Background PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop Three, One Higher. Napoleon Lajoie was one of Cleveland's most beloved figures, so popular in his day that the ballclub was nicknamed the 'Naps' in his honor. The team would take on its current 'Indians' designation only upon his departure in 1915. The turn-of-the-century hero was renowned for being among the finest ballplayers both on and off the field. Lajoie's talents were at the top of the sport earning him elite status with others of his day such as Young, Mathewson, Johnson, Wagner and Cobb. Graded PSA NM-MT 8. This card is one of three at this grade level, there is one rated higher. Colors are strong, a good thing for the scarcer 'Blue Background' version, close to perfect centering and almost no evident sign of wear at two tips makes this a powerfully nice example for the grade.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
