    1910-11 M116 Sporting Life Ty Cobb (Pastel Background) PSA NM 7. Sporting Life gave baseball fans a real option which didn't require using tobacco or hanging out in front of tobacco shops and possibly even encouraged more than a few to do some reading. Today, M116's are an increasingly popular issue. The picturesque portraits are mostly encountered with the soft "Pastel background" you see here or a bold backing in blue. His now iconic portrait is unaffected by wear or blemish. Impressive and scarce, this card is represented by only a small fraction of the total pops seen in his T206 counterparts. This card would be a welcomed addition to any collection. Graded PSA NM 7. This is one of the finer M116 Sporting Life cards featuring Ty Cobb cards recorded on the PSA census. One of seven graded NM with six rated higher.
