Helmar "Our Guy" Collection (72) with 8 Hall of Famers

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $540

Helmar's "Our Guy" cards are distinguished by their extremely colorful backgrounds and the rays of light emanating above each player's head. Because they are very similar in size (1.75 x 2.75 inches) and design to Helmar's T206 issue, some collectors consider them a subset of Helmar T206. The numbered set is currently complete at 165 cards; however, new cards are still being produced. The offered collection of seventy-two cards is comprised of the following: 3 S. Crawford, 7 Donovan, 9 D. Jones, 11 D. Jones, 13 Killian, 14 Killian, 15 McIntyre, 19 Jennings, 21 O'Leary, 23 Rossman, 25 Schmidt, 27 Summers, 28 Stanage, 31 Bates, 33 Beck, 35 Bowerman, 37 Furguson, 39 Herzog, 41 Lindaman, 43 Richie, 45 Sweeney, 47 Bell, 49 Bergen, 53 Dahlen, 65 Lord, 66 Kleinow, 68 Carrigan, 70 Wagner, 71 Stahl, 74 Bescher, 75 Campbell, 76 Downey, 78 Dubuc, 79 Egan, 81 Fromme, 83 Griffith, 84 Griffith, 87 Huggins, 88 Fromme, 89 Hoblitzell, 90 Bescher, 93 Mitchell, 94 Paskert, 97 Spade, 98 McLean, 99 Paskert, 100 Oakes, 102 M. Mitchell, 103 McElveen, 104 McIntyre, 105 McIntyre, 106 Pastorius, 108 Rucker, 109 Rucker, 111 Smith, 114 M. Brown, 117 Chance, 118 Chance, 122 Howard, 123 Hofman, 124 Lundgren, 126 Kling, 127 Moran, 130 Overall, 132 Pfeffer, 135 Ruelbach, 140 Sheckard, 143 Tinker, 147 Zimmerman, 149 G. Davis, 153 Hahn, and 166 Tannehill. The production number for each of the seventy-two "Our Guy" 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 seventy-two cards in this collection, the cumulative sale total was in excess of $1,800. 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: 72 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $540
