Default 1934-36 Diamond Stars team variants

I put together a resource that I hope is useful for Diamond Stars collectors. Whether your reference of choice is the PSA website, the Standard Catalog, Trading Card DB, or just about anywhere else, I was unable to find a single resource that detailed the many team variations of the Diamond Stars set.

I will even say that each of these resources was entirely or largely silent on the fact that FIVE of these variations impact the artwork on the FRONT of the card. My guess is that several of you are aware of the Simmons/Manush front variations. If those are the only ones you know, feel free to click the link for what I believe to be a complete catalog, front and back.

Corrections gladly accepted!

Default Diamond Stars

That's really great! I've collected the set for many years and wasn't aware of some of these. Well done! A great resource.

Thanks, Ron. I suspect because the ink color and stat updates give just about all the cards variations already, it's easy to overlook the fact that some of the cards have even more significant differences.

One thing I'll note at least anecdotally is that it felt like a 10:1 ratio between one variant and another. For instance, you'll find 20 Al Simmons White Sox cards for every 1-2 Tigers cards. Several others felt similar...my brain is a bit zonked after working on the piece all day, but I think the Manush Red Sox card was one. Maybe Babich on the Dodgers too. Ditto for some of the back variations...tough to track down!
