Helmar H813-4 Boston Garter Great Pitchers (12) with Alexander, Brown, Joss, Plank, and Waddell.

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $840

Collection of twelve different cards (4.25 x 8.5 inches), similar in design to the "H813" Boston Garter series, issued by the Helmar Brewing Company This is undoubtedly one of the most attractive of all Helmar card sets and one that artfully captures the spirit of the originals. It should be noted that this issue was only produced during the two-year period 2012-2013 and has been completed, with forty-five cards comprising the complete set. All of the cards bear a "2012" copyright stamp on the reverse. Total production was limited to just twenty sets. The twelve players represented here are Grover Alexander, Chief Bender, Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown, Jack Chesbro, Burleigh Grimes, Addie Joss, Rube Marquard, Jose Mendez, Eddie Plank, Rube Waddell, Smoky Joe Wood, and Ed Walsh. As a point of reference, it should be noted that in sirraffles' most recent individual eBay auctions for the twelve cards in this collection, the cumulative sale total was in excess of $2,150. 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: 12 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $840
