About the Player

The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: Each campaign since 1909 this left-fielder has done the job for the Brooklyn club and the fans know it. He even seems to get better as he gets older: all three of the 200 hit seasons he’s had in his career have come with him being 34 years old or more. He can still smack the ball, especially a curve. As good as a hitter he is, Zack is known as an even better fielder. He can glide after fly balls like nobody’s business and has an arm that keeps baserunners in check.

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.
