1909-1913 M101-2 Sporting News Supplement Ty Cobb. Graded FR 1.5 by PSA. This is the ONLY example of this particular supplement graded at this level with just one graded higher. This piece originates from a remarkable complete set of M101-2 Sporting News Supplements that was obtained by a longtime collector decades ago. The set, as a whole, is perhaps the finest ever assembled, the majority of which is being broken up and offered in several lots in this auction. (The PSA highest-graded Joe Jackson M101-2, which appeared in our Summer Classic Auction and realized a record price of $20,419, originates from this same set.) The 1909-1913 Sporting News supplements were printed on extremely thin paper stock and nearly all surviving examples display a myriad of significant condition flaws, including creases, tears, and corner chips. The offered supplement is free of any significant defects and presents closer to EX-MT in its overall appearance. Cobb is one of the keys to the M101-2 set and one would be hard pressed to find a more attractive example.
