More Negro League Sets

I was searching the 2009 Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards for card sets that include some players from the Negro Leagues and I found a few more sets. Along with the sets, I'm adding checklists for cards or subsets that feature players of the Negro Leagues.

At this time I'm not going to feature cards issued in Latin countries from the 1920s at this point, although there are a number of them. Maybe those will be future posts.

1974 Laughlin Old-Time Black Stars
This 36 card set is attributed to R.G. Laughlin, although the artist did not sign the drawings. There is no copyright date. They are a bit of an oddball size for baseball cards being 2-5/8" x 3-1/2".

1976 Laughlin Indianapolis Clowns
Another Laughlin issue, but uses black and white photos instead of his art. This 42 card set is also an oddball size, 2-5/8" x 4-1/2".
