M101-2 Sporting News Supplements Overview

001A total of nine different subsets make up the famous M101 Sporting News and Supplements series. The nine subsets are categorized as M-Cards in the Periodicals section of the American Card Catalog.

The nine sets are a mixture of both cards and large supplements issued by the Sporting News. With approximately 700 cards and supplements, the issue is a large one, to say the least.

The M101-2 series includes larger supplements that were issued with Sporting News beginning in July of 1909 and ending in 1913.

Subjects range in poses as some are portraits while others are full-length shots. The player’s name and team are printed inside of a small box while the image is a full-bleed photo. Most backs are blank but a small number are known to contain advertisements. Those, of course, are worth a premium over the blank-backed ones. A total of four different advertisements are known.

Most of the supplements have a pair of small boxes – one identifying the subject and another indicating they were a supplement to the Sporting News. However, a few have the ‘Supplement to the Sporting News’ text in a strip/banner across the top.

While most were pictures of individual players, some had more than one player or were team issues.

These supplements are difficult to find in high-grade condition and if you’ve ever seen one in person, you can easily see why. They were printed on thin paper and often have creases or rips/tears in them. In low-grade, commons start at around $10.
