Helmar Brewing Company Art Cards: Modern Collector-Issue Classics
Collection of fifty-five different "Big League Brew" cards issued by the Helmar Brewing Company. This 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! Series 2 cards (#181-240) can be easily identified with tag line on the card back that states "This is one of a series of 240 Baseball Stars." The collection is comprised of the following: 181 Charlie Grimm, 182 Bill Terry, 183 Earle Combs, 184 Judy Johnson, 185 Ted Lyons, 186 Red Faber, 187 Sam Bankhead, 188 G.C. Alexander, 189 Tris Speaker, 190 Goose Goslin, 191 George Sisler, 192 Leo Durocher, 193 Yogi Berra, 194 Pete Gray, 195 Alejandro Oms, 196 Harry Hooper, 197 Jesse Haines, 198 Christobal Torriente, 199 Al Simmons, 200 Paige & Gibson, 201 Masayuki Ishii, 202 Sandy Koufax, 203 Ray Schalk, 204 Honus Wagner, 205 Joe Jackson, 206 Christy Mathewson, 207 Greenberg & Gehringer, 208 Addie Joss, 209 Buck Leonard, 210 Joe Medwick, 211 Johnny Mize, 212 Cool Papa Bell, 213 Josh Gibson, 214 Martin Dihigo, 215 "Smokey Joe" Williams, 216 Turkey Stearns, 217 Jud Wilson, 218 Louis Santop, 219 Willie Foster, 220 Louis Tiant, 221 Bruce Petway, 225 Spots Poles, 226 Al Lopez, 227 John Beckwith, 228 Ty Cobb, 229 Neil Robinson, 230 Mesa, Charleston & Oms, 231 Bill Nicholson, 232 Sam Rice, 233 Tom Zachary, 234 Lloyd Waner, 235 Sal Maglie, 236 Bingo DeMoss, 237 Ray Dandridge, and 238 Alex Radcliffe. As a point of reference, it should be noted that in sirraffles' most recent individual eBay auctions for the fifty-five cards in this collection, the cumulative sale total was in excess of $3,500. Like all of the Helmar issues, these cards were intentionally produced with a distressed look, with most having rounded corners and rubbed edges. Near Mint condition overall. Total: 55 cards. Reserve $400. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $2,400
