    Description

    1911 M110 Sporting Life Hal Chase SGC 50 VG/EX 4. Hal Chase was known as "Prince Hal" for his ability to be charming but it seems he was anything but princely. He may have been charming but that doesn't mean he was sincere. Whispers of bribes, betting and throwing games are all accusations that have followed Chase for a century. Unquestionably he was one of the very first great stars of the New York Highlanders/Yankees but he joins Shoeless Joe Jackson in baseball ignominy, his legacy destroyed by gambling scandal. So despised by baseball leadership, when Chase tried to start a league in Mexico where he owned a café, American League president Ban Johnson had him deported back to the United States thanks to his relationship with the president of Mexico. Offered is a very rare M110 "Sporting Life" cabinet card of baseball personality "Prince" Hal Chase. It is among the rarest Chase cards to acquire. There is one slight stock bend in the upper left corner. The front shows some light pencil marks, corners show very modest amounts of wear. Graded SGC 50 VG/EX 4, the only example in VG/EX with two grading higher from a total population of only eight.
