    1910-11 M116 Sporting Life Christy Mathewson (Blue Background) SGC EX 5. John Esch collection. While most cards of the era had to be pulled from packs of tobacco, this promotion from "Sporting Life" were sold only by mail and in defined series. Today, the M116 series holds considerable appeal for the comprehensive roster, formal portraits, team and back variations and the 24 colorful cards that display a rich blue compliment to the colorized portraits. Offered is a key entry for this popular sub-set, baseball pitcher and gentleman - Christy Mathewson. Graded SGC EX 5. From a total pop of only a dozen submissions, this card is one of two graded EX with four graded higher.
