About the Player

The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: 1909 found 42-year-old “Cy” back in Cleveland, the city in which his Major League career began, when he played for the Spiders. He was traded from the Red Sox for Jack Ryan, Charlie Chech, and perhaps more impressively, $12,500. “Cy” saw 19 wins, 15 losses, and compiled a 2.26 ERA with the 1909 Naps. In total he’s racked up 490 wins, 288 losses, and just might be the greatest pitcher we’ve ever seen. Can he go on forever? Cy” bats right, throws right, stands 6’2”, and these days, won’t set foot on a scale.

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'.
