One of the keys to the M101-2 Sporting News supplements issue, a classic image featuring the top players in the American and National Leagues, shaking hands before squaring off in the 1909 World Series.  The Pirates would, famously, emerge victorious, taking the Series in 7 games, with Wagner batting .333 with 6 RBI.  This example does exhibit significant wear, notably at the corners and edges, with a few pronounced edge tears.  Pinholes are also seen at the corners, with an upper-right corner clip.  PSA has deemed to grade this AUTHENTIC ALTERED due to the presence of clear tape on the reverse, used to stabilize some edge tears.  Despite the wear apparent on this condition-sensitive piece, the image itself is attractive and clean, a noteworthy photo and one of the most important supplements in the entire four-year span of this issue.
