    The monumental card production we now know as M116 was sponsored by the publisher Sporting Life in 1910-11.  The issue was protracted over twelve series, and made available to collectors sequentially by mail order.  Today's advanced collectors passionately pursue all of its 287 different subjects, along with the production's many variations.  The culminating accomplishment in pursuing M116's, however, is attaining the presentation envelopes for each of those series.  Here offered is a splendidly preserved Series 5 envelope.  As with all the envelopes in this issue, the checklist of the 12 players included in Series 5 are itemized on the front.  Because very few of these have survived the years, the issue's subjects, by series, has been shrouded in mystery thus denying today's hobbyist an accurate interpretation of relative scarcities within the M116 production. This one is in commendable EX+ condition, and requisite to the ultimate fulfillment of an M116 set.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
