The Diamond

John Payne contacted me regarding a early 1930s game called The Diamond. It was made by a fringe maker called United Specialties. What is neat about this game is that it has a baseball theme, potentially representing Negro League teams.

The pictures below show the playfield and cabinet. John's notes indicate that each hole represents a city - all of them housing Negro teams. The cities are:

The game gives out 3 balls for 1 cent. Scoring for each hole is represented by the scoring registers at the bottom of the playfield.

If you have any information about this game or United Specialties, please contact me. I can give you John's email address at that time.
