Graded NM+ 86 by SGC. Outstanding ultra high-grade example of Hall of Famer Eddie Plank from the M116 Sporting Life set, one of the most popular of all 1910-era issues. This rare card is popular on many counts, including the fact that the portrait is so similar in appearance to the famous T206 Plank and dates from the same era. This is a gorgeous card! Bright and extremely clean both front and back. The corners are sharp with just the upper right showing the slightest hint of wear under extreme magnification, keeping this card from an even higher grade. The reverse is flawless, with the advertising for Sporting Life printed crisply and boldly in blue. This is a stunning high-grade example of one of Eddie Plank's most classic cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500+. SOLD FOR $2,666
