Helmar Oasis Collection (37) with Wagner, Mathewson, Collins, and Bender

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $960

Collection of thirty-seven cards from Helmar's Oasis issue. These cards, which are created in layers, were designed to create the illusion of depth, thereby evoking the Gaslight Style of the Victorian period. As such, they are one of Helmar's most striking offerings. The collection is comprised of the following: Boston Red Sox: Hooper, Donahue, Criger, Cicotte, Chesbro, Carrigan, Mays, Burchell, Barrett, Ball, Lord, McConnell, Morgan, McHale, Laporte, Wagner. Brooklyn Dodgers: Bergen, Bissonette. Chicago White Sox: Gandil, Fiene, Callahan, Dougherty, Chourneau, Chappell, Burns, Scott, White. New York Giants: Mathewson, Donlin, Taylor. Philadelphia A's: Hoffman, Hartsell, Cross, E. Collins, Bender. Pittsburgh Pirates: Wagner, Clarke. Each card measures approximately 2.65 x 4 inches. As a point of reference, it should be noted that in sirraffles' most recent individual eBay auctions for the thirty-seven cards in this collection, the cumulative sale total was in excess of $2,600. 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: 37 cards.

Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $960
