The Star of Brooklyn club was an amateur team that played as a member of the National Association of Base Ball Players from 1859 to 1870. The team appears to have existed as an independent team as early as 1856 before it officially joined the NABBP. The Star played its home games at the Union Grounds, which it shared with the Brooklyn Eckfords.

After the league became professional in 1871 and limited itself to nine teams, the club competed in the short-lived National Association of Amateur Base Ball Players.
