Welcome to www.StarsOfTheDiamond.com! This website highlights my collection of Sports Cards, and more specifically my Pre-World War II Baseball Card Collection. I have been a collector of vintage sports cards for over 20 years. I have many areas of interest within the hobby, however, my taste is rather eclectic. Please note that not all cards on this site are for sale, but I do have an area where some cards can be purchased. I am actively looking for many cards for sets or projects that I am working on, so please check out my Wantlist . If you would like to contact me I can be reached via e-mail at rhettyeakley@netzero.com .

19th Century Baseball Cards
I have decided to make many cards available for purchase, however, please note that only those items that are listed with a price are available for purchase. Those without a price are part of my personal collection and are Not For Sale. This site will forever be a work in progress. I hope to add more items as time goes on and as I get a chance to scan more items. Any prices listed below do not include shipping, shipping will depend on size of item and amount purchased, please email me if you have any questions.
