About the Player

A short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: Mordecai hails from Indiana coal country, hence the nick name “Miner”. As a youngster he worked for a mining company as a record keeper. Joining the company ball team led to a pitching slot in 1901 with the Terre Haute Hottentots in the IIIL league. He won 25 against 8 while throwing more than 300 innings. This success, along with his 27 wins with the Omaha Indians the following year, propelled him to his current lofty status as one of the premier hurlers in the National League. “Three-Finger” has a wicked curve ball that no batter has ever figured out. He is 5 feet, 10 inches tall and 175 pounds.

About the Series

The Helmar T206 series is one of our boldest and most important projects. Each card is the same size as the original American Tobacco 1909-1911 T206 cards, though the Helmar T206s are thicker and sturdier. Each Helmar T206 is made from an original, exclusive painting. Cuban stars, Babe Ruth with the Red Sox, Negro Leaguers, and Ty Cobb shaking hands with Honus Wagner are some of the most popular Helmar T206s.

We also spend a huge amount of time creating evocative, humorous, interesting backs. In creating these cards, we have a deep appreciation for the unknown artists who brought the original T206s to life.

Oddities: Card #26, Fred Clarke, has two versions. One has the painting cropped at about the knees. The second has a closer cropping of the head and chest. The fuller figure is much more rare. A similar situation exists for card #501, Tom Jones. The closer cropping is rarer and is found only with the Colgan's Chips logo in the bottom right corner.

A handful of test cards were made with proposed back designs that were never used. They are hand marked as such. The fronts featured either Walter Johnson or Rabbit Maranville.
