    1916 "Sporting Life" Near Complete Year. John Esch Collection. Offered for consideration is a near complete run of Sporting Life magazine for the year 1916. One issue, March 4, is not present, but all others are accounted for. The condition varies from Good to very-Good. Due to the delicate nature of newsprint of this age, paper loss and split spines are inevitable and are present in many issues, though many remain intact. The content within the magazines is rare and valuable. Vintage photographs, news stories, and statistics fill each copy. Famous athletes of the day are depicted, including Rogers Hornsby, Tris Speaker, Wilbert Robinson, and many more. A treasure trove for the sports researcher.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
