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 Rhett he can be reached via e-mail at rhettyeakley@netzero.com .

Non-Sports Cards (19th Century Tobacco)
I have decided to make many of the Non-Sports Cards I have collected over the years available for purchase. I have tried to break down the collection to best highlight my different areas of interest. This site will forever be a work in progress so be sure to check back often as I am constantly adding new things.
