1934-1936 Diamond Stars

Issued continuously from 1934 to 1936, the National Chicle Diamond Stars (R327) set consists of 108 cards, each of which measures 2-3/8” by 2-7/8”. Each item features a color art rendering of a player photograph, usually “in action,” along with his name. The precise year of issue is deciphered by player statistics printed on the reverse – which also display a biography or big league tip – which is printed on a green or blue background. The set is anchored by the era’s superstars and future Hall of Famers including KiKi Cuyler (#31), Jimmie Foxx (#64), Hank Greenberg (#54), Lefty Grove (#1), Rogers Hornsby (#44), Carl Hubbell (#39) and Mel Ott (#50). The final 12 cards in the set are generally more difficult to obtain and feature the likes of Al Lopez (#97), Pie Traynor (#99), Bill Dickey (#103), Red Rolfe (#104), Ernie Lombardi (#105) and Wally Berger (#108). Variations exist of several players who were issued in more than one year but with different colored backs, including Mickey Cochraine, Bill Dickey, Tony Lazzeri, Heinie Manush and Paul Waner, resulting in a “master set” of 170 cards.
