About the Player

A short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: Every once in a while a young man comes along that is clearly headed for a glorious baseball career. Frankie Frisch is one of those young men. He joined the Giants in 1919 and manager McGraw made sure that he played in 54 games for experience. Just two years later Frankie batted .341 and led the big leagues with 49 stolen bases. It seems that he can do it all with a bat; he regularly bats in more than 100, hits over .300, has led the bigs with as many as 223 hits. He usually scores more than 100 per season, too. His glove is dangerous, too. What he can’t scoop cleanly he knocks down with his chest before throwing out another runner.

About the Series

Seven layers make up a Helmar Oasis card. Each layer has to fit perfectly. It takes a long time to construct each card, then scuff it to make it seem well-worn; it's already well-loved, by us. Oasis is designed to evoke the Gaslight Style, a name applied to commercial trade signs of the 1870's through 1890's, in an era that succumbed to electric light. The essence of Helmar Oasis is depth. The pictures of the players arise in a shadowy light, to seem like they're almost emerging from another plane of existence. Each card is about 2.65' x 4'.
