About the Player

A short bio from the Boston Garter Game of the Century card back: Supposedly, the Cubs sensational young right-handed pitcher Lon Warneke developed his arm by throwing rocks at squirrels in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. True or not, one thing is certain: the 24-year-old has superb control over his blazing fastball which he keeps right at the batters’ knees. Last year in his first full campaign Lon mowed down the competition, picking up a league-leading 22 wins against only 6 losses while also leading the league in ERA with a crack figure of 2.37. Young as Warneke is, NL dugout leader John McGraw will not hesitate to use the fearless red-headed country lad from Mt. Ida, Arkansas, against the AL’s best in the July 6 World Fair’s exhibition.

About the Series

Helmar's Boston Garter tradition of strikingly original artwork takes a giant leap forward in this celebration of the first All-Star game, known at the time as the 'Game of the Century'. Thirty-six players and both managers appear in the joyful Art Deco style that defined the period. For the first time we are hand numbering each card. Just twenty sets are printed and numbered plus four sets of artist's proofs. Each card is 3' x 5'.
