Big League Retirement Party


Wow, I was looking over the list of cards in our Helmar-R319 series that have retired over the past few months.

It saddens me a bit when a card reaches retirement.

The good part about a card retirement is that in one sense the fun is just beginning. At this point the card has entered the secondary market and the twenty or so lucky souls that are fortunate enough to own a print have something very, very rare. In a few weeks we’ll be introducing the Helmar Marketplace on our website; this should help Helmar collectors connect more easily.
