1939 M101-9 Sporting News Supplements Overview

Feller M101-9.jpgA 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 M101-9 series includes larger supplements. These are sepia-toned/red-toned supplements featuring a player image on the front along with his name printed at the bottom. Some of the supplements are individual players and others are teams.

Sizes on these vary. Supplements featuring individual players are approximately 7″ x 10″ while the team issues are larger at approximately 10 1/2″ x 15″ in size.

Like the M101-8 issue before it, the M101-9s are extremely hard to find.
