    1899-1900 M101-1 Sporting News George "Rube" Waddell. Offered is an 1899-1900 M101-1 Sporting News premium featuring HoFer George "Rube" Waddell with the Louisville Colonels. Issued April 14, 1900, this rare supplement was issued in the spring after "Rube" pitched in his first full season of 1899. The fragile paper shows creasing (a couple heavy), small edge tears, a pair of staple holes and some staining. Overall Poor, but it is the true rookie debut as it predates any trading card or any known cabinet photo.
