A short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: Josh has won 9 home run titles and 4 batting crowns in 13 full seasons in the Negro Leagues. His lifetime average is .384, tops among all black players. He has hit many homers that measure 600’ or longer, making him the “Black Babe Ruth” and a giant among ballplayers. During the cold winter months Josh can usually be found playing ball in Cuba or Latin America. He likes to keep in top baseball shape the year around and credits his work ethic for his wonderful success.
