Helmar Brewing Company Art Cards: Modern Collector-Issue Classics.

Collection of 15 cabinet cards (3.5 x 6 inches) issued by the Helmar Brewing Company. This set began production in 2010 and new cabinets are still being issued today. In keeping with the Helmar tradition, both Hall of Fame and non Hall of Fame players were issued in this set. According to the manufacturer, "No one design is sold more often than every 8 to 10 weeks, no more than six pieces are made in a year." The players represented here are Alexander (HOF, Cubs), Appling (HOF, White Sox), Baker (HOF, Athletics), M. Brown (HOF, Cubs), Chance (HOF, Cubs), Cobb (HOF, Tigers), Dean (HOF, Cardinals), C. Ebbetts (Owner, Brooklyn Superbas [Dodgers]), Rondeau (Tigers), Steinfeldt (Cubs), Vaughn (Senators), Wagner (HOF, Pirates), P. Waner (HOF, Pirates), R. Williams (Senators), and York (Tigers). 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: 15 cards.
Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
