Helmar "R319" Big League Brew Negro League Stars Collection (7) with Paige, Gibson, Dihigo, and Bell

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $480

Collection of seven different Helmar "R319" Big League Brew cards, each featuring a different Negro League star: 1) 74 James "Cool Papa" Bell, 2) #147 Josh Gibson, 3) #200 Satchel Paige & Josh Gibson, 4) #212 James "Cool Papa" Bell (kneeling w/bat), 5) 213 Josh Gibson (catching), 6) 214 Martin Dihigo, and 7) 223 Satchel Paige. 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 seven "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 seven cards in this collection, the cumulative sale total was in excess of $1,500. 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: 7 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $480
