Helmar "R319" Big League Brew Original "Error Card" Artwork - Frank Crosetti

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $120

For more information about the fifteen Helmar lots which appear in this auction, please visit the following link which provides the introduction to these lots which appears in the printed catalog.

Original artwork (3 x 3.5 inches) for card #296 Frank Crosetti in Helmar's "Big League Brew" issue. As one can see here, the original artwork for the card misspelled Crosetti's name, which was later amended for the production of the card. Ideally, an example of Crosetti's card #296 is included with the artwork. The "Big League Brew" issue, which is similar in style to "R319" Goudey cards, is one of Helmar's most popular sets and, in keeping with the company's tradition, includes not only Hall of Fame and non Hall of Fame players, but also Negro League stars, Japanese players, and even House of David team members. The set began production in 2010 and new additional cards are still being issued today! The reverse of the artwork features the signatures of the artist and of Helmar president Charles Mandel, as well as noting the card # (300) and date produced ("Dec. 2011"). As is often the case with Helmar original card artworks, the card number listed on the back of the offered Crosetti artwork ("300") was later changed to "296" during the production of the actual card. Both the artwork and card are in Near Mint condition. Total: 2 items (original artwork and card). SOLD FOR $120
