The 1916 Sporting News M101-4 baseball series consists of 200 cards, each measuring 1-5/8” by 3”. Each piece hosts a sepia image with the player’s name, team, position and the card number identified at the lower white border. The set was offered as a marketing promotion by C.C. Spink and Son, publishers of The Sporting News, with the backs either blank, bearing the publication’s name, or carrying one of several different advertisements. The M101-4 series is anchored by Eddie Collins (#24), Charles Comiskey (#36), Ty Cobb (#38), Sam Crawford (#41), Joe Jackson (#87), Hugh Jennings (#90), Walter Johnson (#91), Babe Ruth (#151), Joe Tinker (#174) and Honus Wagner (#182).
