Limited Edition 45-card set celebrating the greatest players of the oldtime Negro Leagues

A comprehensive baseball card set of stars by Phil Dixon, a recognized authority in the field

One of the earliest card sets commemorating the players and their exploits in the old Negro Leagues is this limited edition set issued nearly a quarter century ago by author, speaker and historian Phil Dixon. Measuring approximately 3" by 5", each card features a black and white photograph on the front complemented by an interesting biography and vital statistics on the reverse side.

With the passage of time, these cards are becoming increasingly difficult to find.

Near-Mint or better condition

Important: Shipping Information 

Our goal has always been to keep shipping costs low. Our objective is to sell cards and other things of interest to baseball hobbyists - not make money by overcharging on shipping.

  • U.S. and Canada: We combine multiple items purchased so you pay only the shipping on the heaviest item - all other items ship free of charge. (An exception would be if an item must be sent via media/book rate.)
  • All Other Countries: Email us first.
  • To receive your combined shipping, please wait for us to send you a combined invoice. The eBay checkout system usually displays an incorrect shipping charge. (It is normally too high.) Please do not pay for each item separately; if you pay separately, there is no shipping discount.
  • We pack your order carefully - sandwiching cards between cardboard and utilizing boxes, bubble wrap, etc., as necessary - to ensure your items arrive in the condition you expect.
  • Items are shipped the next business day after we receive your payment. We ship 5 - sometimes 6 - days each week.

                Payment must be made within 10 days after notification of  purchase. BN-101
