Diamond Heads ’15

The Diamond Heads ’15 series is inspired by some of the most iconic sets in the hobby, such as the Cracker Jacks, Goudeys and US Caramels. Diamond Heads ’15 borrows a little from each, yet is distinctive & unique in its own right.

Using a variety of bold colors and gradients as backgrounds for head shots and vintage ballpark scenes for action poses, every card is unique.

The biographical sketches on the reverse include information up through the 1914 season They are written from a fictitious journalist’s perspective in 1915, albeit with an inevitable degree of hindsight and historical perspective.
