In recent years, it seems the M116 Sporting Life cards are beginning to get their due.  An outstanding set that rivals T206 in terms of player selection but without the multiple poses and variations, the cards each feature handsome portraits of their subjects.  Sale prices of the issue's key cards have more than doubled since the start of the 2020s, led by the key cards of Cobb and Honus Wagner.  This example, well centered (as is often the case) with outstanding print registration, is clean, with even corner rounding and little noticeable surface wear.  The quality control in the M116 issue is excellent, most cards reasonably centered and the print quality strong.  The result is a host of sharp, attractive cards.
