    1910-11 M116 Sporting Life Ty Cobb, Blue Background PSA NM 7. Offered is one of the finest 1910 M116 Sporting Life Ty Cobb cards recorded on the PSA census. Sporting Life gave baseball fans a real option which didn't require using tobacco or hanging out in front of tobacco shops. Today, M116's are an increasingly popular issue. The picturesque (and far more scarce) "blue background" treatment truly enhances the bold presentation of this card. His portrait, affected by slight surface war along a portion of right is framed to near perfection by a sparkling white border, only a trace of wear is apparent on the corners. Impressive and scarce, this card is represented by only a third of the population of the Pastel counterpart. This card would be a welcomed addition to even the most significant of collections in the hobby. Graded PSA NM 7. This card is one the only example at this grade level, there are three rated higher.
