2012 - Helmar Recreations
Notes: This is a recent, hand-made art card by HELMAR. The original artwork was accomplished using gouache paint. We are planning to offer a few different cards from the series each week until our supply is exhausted. They are available only as singles; never in full sets. Helmar cards are printed on paper stock consistent with the most treasured card sets of the late 19th century, and early 20th century. Our cards are hand-distressed and treated, to give them a worn, well-loved look and feel, and a fresh, unique scent. We’ve hit a homer if it seems as if you are holding a vintage card in your hands. All the original art is painted by our team. You won’t find it anywhere else. Our graphic artists choose the perfect poses and colors. We spend almost as much time creating the backs of the cards as the fronts. For our cards that display player information on the backs, our writers strive to create descriptions that transport you to the time of the player’s career. Everything we do is a time-gobbling labor of baseball-card love. Since each card is handmade, no two look exactly the same.
