1911 M116 Sporting Life Walter Johnson PSA MINT 9
Starting Bid - $5,000.00, Sold For - $12,925.00
Graded MINT 9 by PSA. This is the highest PSA grade ever given to this classic Walter Johnson card. Only four examples of the M116 Sporting Life of Walter Johnson have been graded at this level with none graded higher. Featuring a majestic portrait of the legendary pitcher, the Walter Johnson card is one of the key Hall of Famers in the M116 Sporting Life set. Like his portrait card in T206, this card is universally recognized as one of Johnson's most striking baseball cards. This is a stunning card in all respects. All four corners are perfect and razor-sharp. The card is perfectly clean, both front and back, with snow-white borders. The centering on front is virtually perfect (47/53 left to right). The back of the card is also beautifully centered, just a hint toward the bottom and right. This card would be a worthy addition to even the most advanced world-class vintage-card collection, and a centerpiece to any high-grade M116 Sporting Life, Walter Johnson, or Hall of Fame card collection. SMR value for the assigned grade is $12,500. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000+. SOLD FOR $12,925.00
