    1916 M101-4 "The Sporting News" PSA Near Set (151/200) - A Fresh to The Hobby Find. This presentation of 151 of the 200 cards that comprise the M101-4 "The Sporting News" edition from 1916. They come to us after being passed down from the young baseball fan who acquired the cards in 1916 and did what today most consider unthinkable - he took them to baseball games and made note of stand-out moments. Over 30 of the cards have an "MK" qualifier and each shows notations like "hit" "foul to catcher" "fast grounder to third base-out" etc. cementing the strong connection to the sport America has be they a fan, collector or both. Each card displays a "The Sporting News" advertisement and as mentioned, they have never been offered before. This set could be had for a $2 subscription. We feel he will see a good return on his investment. NOTE: the Cobb, Johnson, Jackson and Babe Ruth cards from this same set are available elsewhere in this auction.
