About the Player

The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: Stan Musial has been tutoring young Wally Moon for four seasons now and it has been paying big dividends for the Cards. In each campaign the centerfielder has batted between .295 and .304. Musial, who patrols nearby right field, has batted between .310 and .354 over the same span. Both are left handed hitters and Moon couldn’t have chosen a better mentor to work with. Stan first joined St. Louis in 1941 as a 20 year old and long ago figured out how to play every inch of the Cardinal outfield.

About the Series

The Helmar R-319 series was originally 180 cards. Then we expanded it to 240. Then 308. Right now it’s 385 cards. The design is based on one of the greatest baseball card sets of all time, the 1933 Goudey set. The 1933 Goudey set has, famously, four Babe Ruths. We have many of the greatest players from Goudey set, and also Babe Didrikson, Josh Gibson, Satchel Paige, Martin Dihigo, many other Cuban and Japanese players, and Negro Leaguers. R-319s have a good amount of text on the reverse. When you’re reading the back of a Helmar R-319 we aim to transport you back in time to a moment in the player’s career. Fleetwood Walker and the color barrier coming down. The great Rube Foster’s breakdown. Swede Risberg being banned from baseball. Given the scope, the expense and the complexity for a small company or artist to put together such a big set of original art, no one else may ever attempt to create a set this ambitious.
