1916 M101-5 Blank Backs on Ebay
1916 M101-5 Blank Backs 1-5/8 x 3" cards, black-and-white photo on slender white card with thin border. Player name at the bottom, followed by position and team name, and card number.

These are found both with blank backs and with advertising for various businesses on the reverse.

This card set was advertised in The Sporting News at $1 for the entire set, or $2.50 for an uncut sheet, framed. (Do any of these still exist?) The publishing firm of Felix Mendelsohn released this.

Sales must have been good, as there were two or more printings of this set, with name misspellings and other errors corrected between printings.

Prominent cards in this set include:
57 - 'Hap' Felsch
86 - Joe Jackson
90 - Walter Johnson
151 - Babe Ruth
176 - Jim Thorpe
184 - Hans [Honus] Wagner
186 - Bobby Wallace (# later replaced with Zach Wheat)
188 - Buck Weaver
