Comments on this Card

'I wanted to get away from white clouds because of his white uniform.' -Charles

About the Player

A short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: “Rock” usually hits the ball hard, amassing large quantities of doubles, triples, and homers. On July 1, 1935, he was lighting firecrackers, and one blew up too soon, blasting lacerations in Earl’s hand and face. Luckily for Indians fans, Earl made a full recovery. In 1936 he led the American League with 232 hits and 15 triples, while finishing second in batting average, with .378. Lifetime, he’s hitting above .310, with a slugging percentage over .525. A solid center fielder, Earl played 3 seasons for San Francisco in the Pacific Coast League before being picked up by Cleveland. He lives in Snohomish, Washington.

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'.
