For more information about the twelve Helmar lots which appear in this auction, please visit the following link which provides the introduction to these lots which appears in the printed catalog.
Collection of twenty-three different die-cut team cabinet cards (6 x 4.5 inches) issued by the Helmar Brewing Company. This set began production in 2010 and new additional team cards are still being issued today. The unique design of each card features portrait illustrations of six team members set against a colorful stadium or city backdrop, with both the team and players identified in print. Included among the players featured in this grouping are John McGraw, Honus Wagner, Frank Baker, Eddie Collins, Walter Johnson, Cy Young, Nap Lajoie, Tris Speaker, Harry Hooper, Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, Frank Chance, Mordecai Brown, Willie Keeler, Hal Chase, Ty Cobb, Fred Clarke, Rube Waddell, Bobby Wallace, Vic Willis, Ed Walsh, and Hugh Duffy. Although a few teams are represented more than once, no two cards are identical because the players pictured are either partially or totally different. Most of the teams are also identified by year. In keeping with the Helmar tradition, both major leage and minor-league teams are included in the set. The teams represented here, with the number for each team (if more than one) noted in parenthesis, are 1909 Chicago White Sox (2), New York Giants, St. Louis Cardinals (2), 1911 St. Louis Browns (2), Pittsburgh Pirates, 1909 Detroit Tigers (2), 1910 New York Highlanders (2), Chicago Cubs, 1910 Boston Red Sox, 1910 Cleveland Indians, Washington Senators, 1911 Philadelphia Athletics (2), 1911 Jersey City Skeeters, 1909 Southern Association, 1909 Southern Association and Texas League, and 1911 Portland Beavers (2). Near Mint condition overall. Total: 23 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $3,259
