About the Player

Ty Cobb says: “One of the gamest exhibitions at first base I ever saw was the work of George Wiltse for the Giants during the 1913 world's series with the Athletics. After Merkle was hurt, Wiltse went in there with only the little experience he had gained from covering the bag in odd moments of preliminary practice, and made a great showing. He displayed more gameness than any other member of the New York club be sides Mathewson and McLean. When the Giants took the ten-inning game from Plank, Wiltse, next to Mathewson, deserved the most credit for the victory.”

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". Gouache paintings by J. Scott Pedely.
