Helmar "T206" Negro & Cuban League Stars Collection (13) with Foster, Lloyd, Charleston, and Williams

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $480

Collection of thirteen different Helmar Brewing cards, consisting of Negro and Cuban League stars, 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: Rube Foster, John Henry Lloyd, Gus Greenlee, Mike Herrera, Jose Mendez, Frank Duncan, Armando Cabanas, Sam Gordon, Octavius Catto, Bill Gatewood, John Donaldson, Oscar Charleston, and Smokey Joe Williams. 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 thirteen cards in this collection, the cumulative sale total was in excess of $1,300. 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: 13 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $480
