Helmar Brewing Company Art Cards: Modern Collector-Issue Classics
Collection of five different Helmar "R319" Big League Brew cards, each featuring a different Negro League star: 43 Satchel Paige, 65 Roberto Clemente, 34 James "Cool Papa" Bell, 111 Josh Gibson, and 147 Josh Gibson. This issue, which is similar in style to R319 Goudey cards, is one of Helmar's most popular sets. The production number for each of the five "R319" cards offered here was limited to just twenty-five total, with no more than six produced per calendar year. As a point of reference, it should be noted that in sirraffles' most recent individual eBay auctions for the five cards in this collection, the cumulative sale total was in excess of $1,100. Like all of the Helmar issues, these cards were intentionally produced with a distressed look, including rounded corners and rubbed edges. Near Mint condition overall. Total: 5 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $300
