Original artwork on board of Honus Wagner that was initially used to produce packaging for one of Helmar’s “Big League Brew Carriers” in 2003. The artwork was then later reused to produce Wagner’s card in Helmar’s “Big League Brew” series, which is similar in style to “R319” Goudey cards. The artwork is accompanied by a COA signed by Charlie Mandel, president of the Helmar Brewing Company, that reads in part “Original painting of Honus Wagner Accomplished by Kalaish Raj. This original was used to produce packaging for one of Helmar’s Big League Brew carriers. January, 2003.” The artwork measures 5 x 7.5 inches and is in Near Mint to Mint condition. Also accompanied by an original Helmar “Big League Brew” card #179 Honus Wagner (Nr-Mt/Mt), which was also produced from this artwork. Total: 2 items (artwork and card). Reserve $200.
