Helmar "T206" Hall-of-Famer Card Collection (7) with Ruth, Cobb (2), Johnson (2), Mathewson, and Wagner

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $480

Collection of seven different Helmar Brewing Hall of Famer cards from the company's popular "T206" set, which is similar in design to the T206 White Border tobacco-card issue. The collection is comprised of the following: Babe Ruth (standing/w Red Sox sweater), Honus Wagner (leaning), Ty Cobb (bat at knees), Ty Cobb & Honus Wagner (shaking hands), Walter Johnson (wind-up), Walter Johnson (standing), Christy Mathewson (seated w/sweater) The production number for each of the seven "T206" 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 $1,600. 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
