    1916 M101-4 Green-Joyce George Sisler #164 SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5 - The Only SGC Example! NOTE: The posted image of the back of the is a little bright. The overall surface tone difference between the back and the front is more subtle.

    George Sisler is one of the greatest batters our National Pastime has ever seen. His record of 257 hits in 1920 stood for over eight decades. His 1922 campaign, punctuated by a stunning .420 batting average and league-leading totals in hits (246), stolen bases (51) and triples (18), is widely considered one of the best individual single seasons in baseball history. He was a landslide winner of the 1922 American League MVP Award. His durability and consistency made him a Hall of Famer and a common addition to trading card promotion of the era. We can say with certainty that not all of his cards are common. Offered is what could possibly be his rarest card, a "Green-Joyce - Department of Sports" card #164 from 1916. This was his first full season in MLB and his rookie card debut. Green-Joyce was anchored in Columbus, OH and based on the obviously small number of available cards, this brand probably never saw circulation outside of the Ohio state line. Currently, SGC has graded a little over fifty total Green-Joyce submissions. A very modest sum for a 200-card promotion. Graded SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5. This is the only example graded by SGC!
