For the first time ever, Strat-O-Matic is releasing a great teams set from the Negro Leagues. Diamond Gems Negro Leagues is now available and brings back teams that have never been produced before.
Unlike Strat-O-Matic’s popular Negro League Stars set with players based on career statistics, this set of eight legendary franchises feature superstars in their single-season primes, dueling their rivals. All cards will be full Super-Advanced level.
Included with your purchase is a booklet highlighting each team’s season, roster, default lineup and rotation and ballpark/weather effects
