Collection of twenty-four cabinet cards (3.5 x 6 inches) issued by the Helmar Brewing Company. This set began production in 2010 and new cabinets are still being issued today. In keeping with the Helmar tradition, both Hall of Fame and non Hall of Fame players were issued in this set. According to the manufacturer, "No one design is sold more often than every 8 to 10 weeks, no more than six pieces are made in a year." The players represented here are Luke Appling, Frank "Home Run" Baker (port. Yankees), Frank "Home Run" Baker (Athletics), Dave Bancroft, Mordecai Brown, Frank Chance, Ty Cobb (2 diff.), Eddie Collins, Earle Combs, Gavvy Cravath, Sam Crawford, Charles Ebbetts, Buck Ewing, Johnny Evers, "Shoeless" Joe Jackson, John McGraw, Otto Miller, Frank Navin, Bill Wambsganss, Chief Wilson, Cy Young, Ross Youngs, and Heine Zimmerman. As a point of reference, it should be noted that in sirraffles' most recent individual eBay auctions for the twenty-four cards in this collection, the cumulative sale total was in excess of $1,750. 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: 24 cabinets Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $600
