Helmar "R319" Big League Brew Mickey Mantle Card Collection (4)

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $600

Collection of four different Helmar "R319" Big League Brew Mickey Mantle cards: 117 Mickey Mantle (portrait), 129 Mickey Charles Mantle (pointing at ball hit for the longest 565-foot home run in Major League history), 142 Mickey Mantle & Roger Maris, and 168 Mickey Mantle & Hank Aaron. Also included in this lot is a fifth card: a R319 #193 Yogi Berra (portrait) card. 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 $1,350. 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 (4 of Mantle and 1 of Berra). Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $600
