As a point of reference, it should be noted that in sirraffles' most recent individual eBay auctions for the thirty-nine cards in this collection, the cumulative sale total was in excess of $6,000. 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: 39 cards.
