About the Player

The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: This tall right-hander has a big windup that confuses batters. With his long arms swinging and his leg high in the air, it is almost impossible to pick out the ball among all the chaos. Paige knows it, too, sometimes telling his fielders to sit down while he strikes out the side. A son of Mobile, Alabama, LeRoy seems to flourish as a traveling man. Not only does his ballplaying take him from city to city, he likes to switch teams nearly as easily as changing his shoes. In this way he has become famous throughout the baseball playing world.

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.
