One of a Kind: Frank Navin Helmar Cabinet #19

Last April 27 (2011) I auctioned off this Frank Navin cabinet card. Navin was, of course, owner of the Tigers for some time and the stadium was long named for him. He was quite a guy-as a young man in law school (Cooley College of Law, here in Detroit) he paid for his tuition by working in a casino as a croupier. From that humble start began a career that would make him a wealthy and respected man. The cabinet itself was an experiment, something I love doing. While I expect to eventually make a different cabinet card of Navin, this is the only one that will be made like this. It sold for $14.27.
