About the Player

A short bio from the Boston Garter Game of the Century card back: After St. Louis outfielder Pepper Martin demolished Connie Mack’s Philadelphia Athletics in the 1931 World Series, American League ball fans never wanted to see his mug again. But they will when the Cardinals’ one-man wrecking crew, who batted .500 on 12 hits with a HR, 4 doubles, 5 RBI, and 5 stolen bases iin that Series, plays in the mid-season Game of the Century. Martin slumped last year because of a broken finger and a badly infected insect bite, but he is back in form this season playing again like a man possessed. He has switched from the outfield to third base and will start in the big game ahead of the great Pie Traynor.

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.
