1916 Morehouse Baking M101-4/M101-5 Overview

M101 Morehouse Back.jpgm101-4-006-archerThe M101-4 series is one of the more well-known of the M101 Sporting News issues and includes smaller, traditional trading cards. The cards feature black and white images of players along with the name, position, team, and card number on the bottom. The M101-5 series is similar, but has some different players.

While the sets are often called Sporting News sets, numerous advertisers used these cards in their own sets. One of those was Morehouse Baking.

These cards are exactly like the regular M101-4 and M101-5 Sporting News cards but the difference is identified on the back. Instead of a Sporting News advertisement, there is one for Morehouse Baking.

The Morehouse Baking name is on the back as is their address at Office 7, Mill Street in Lawrence, Massachusetts.

Like other companies utilizing the M101-4 and M101-5 cards for their own purposes, Morehouse Baking offered a promotion. While 200 cards were advertised as being in the set, their offer was a little different from others requiring collectors to find an entire set. Instead, Morehouse Baking would give a baseball and bat or a jumprope to the person collecting 50 different cards. This was a local promotion as collectors had to bring the cards to their office to show them (collectors were able to keep the cards).

1916 Morehouse Baking M101-4/M101-5 Checklist

This checklists below are from the M101-4 Sporting News/Mendelsohn set and the M101-5 set. Both checklists are provided because Morehouse Baking cards have been found with cards from both sets. So essentially, these are possible Morehouse Baking cards.
