About the Player

The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: 'He's got a gun concealed on his person. They can't tell me he throws them balls with just his arm,' says penman Ring Lardner about young Walter Johnson. Johnson features one pitch, the fastball, which has whistled past many an American League batter these past five seasons. In 1911, “The Big Train” racked up 207 strikeouts. In 1910, he notched 313 whiffs. He achieved 25 victories in both ’10 and ’11 and looks forward to more. The “Big Train” stands 6’1” and is 200 pounds. Rumor is circulating that he is trying to perfect a curve ball.

About the Series

The Helmar H813-4 Boston Garter series consists of 45 cards, and the design was inspired by one of the most beautiful baseball card sets of all time, the 1912 Boston Garters. The originals showed the sock garters; the Helmar versions instead show interesting scenes in the background or period detail such as a 1912-era telephone. Each card is large at 8.5' x 4.25' and gorgeous. Produced in 2014. In the fall of 2021 the series was extended with a round, 2.5' dexterity hand puzzle made to match each earlier card in the series. Each hand puzzle consitutes a game piece that includes three dice with outcomes detailed on the puzzle's backs. Two new players were introduced within the series extension, #47 (Lazzeri) and #81 (Cravath). Additionally, the last two puzzles feature John McGraw in multi-player illustrations. The back of #83 features a checklist.
