One of the keys to the M101-4/5 issues, the card of Honus Wagner is one of the most popular and highly-coveted cards of its era.  This blank-backed version boasts a strong image of the Flying Dutchman nearing the end of his career, with some faint wear visible on the front, but strong corners and outstanding image quality.  The flaw on this card is a heavy diagonal print line at the right, which begins at the right edge near Wagner's hands and continues downward and to the left, into the print area of the card, concluding with some light ink smudging in the text area.  Regardless of the wear, the image is quite dark and bold, with similar print lines and light smudges faintly visible toward the left.  Despite the print issues, this is an outstanding card, well-centered and with sharp corners, a very important late-career card of one of the game's most popular players.
