Description

A set of 21 (2.5"x 3.5") baseball cards celebrating many of the players who made up the barrier-breaking baseball team, the Chatham Coloured All-Stars (1932-1939). Designed by cartoonist Scott Chantler, these cards feature a player photograph, biographical statement and, where possible, player statistics for the 1934 season. Cards are laser printed in colour on 12pt C2S cardstock and packaged in an acid-free, ultra clear polypropylene resealable bag.

These cards are part of the "Breaking the Colour Barrier: Wilfred "Boomer" Harding & the Chatham Coloured All-Stars (1932-1939)" digital archive project (http://cdigs.uwindsor.ca/BreakingColourBarrier), a collaboration between the University of Windsor's Department of History, the Leddy Library, the Chatham Sports Hall of Fame, and the Harding Family. It was generously funded by an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant in 2016-2017.

This website tells the story of the Chatham, Ontario baseball team who became the first black team to win a provincial Ontario Baseball Amateur Association championship in 1934. In collecting oral histories from family and friends of these players, newspaper documentation of the 1934 season, artifacts about the team, and developing curricular resources for K-12 teachers and a traveling storyboard exhibit, this project conveys a rich and vital story about race, courage, and community in Southwestern Ontario in the early 20th century.

All proceeds from the sale of these cards and other Chatham Coloured All-Stars merchandise go to support the excellent work of the Chatham Kent Black Historical Society in Chatham, ON. The Chatham-Kent Black Historical Society, a Non-Profit Organization, is dedicated to the discovery, research, and preservation of the black history found in the Municipality of Chatham-Kent and the city of Chatham.
