The Negro Leagues have teamed up with Dreams Fulfilled and the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum to make some awesome products.
The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum and Dreams Fulfilled launched a Kickstarter Campaign earlier this week to create a series of officially licensed, limited edition bobbleheads to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Negro National League, which will take place in 2020.
The ultimate goal of the bobblehead series is to celebrate and honor the rich history of the league and its players – of which many never were featured on a bobblehead.
Each bobblehead will come individually numbered 1-2,020 and is packaged in a collector’s box with a player bio.
The bobbleheads are officially licensed by the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and each is being produced by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.
If you want to get in on the Kickstarter and become a backer, you can do so at this link. The Kickstarter ends on January 7, 2019 – National Bobblehead Day. There are a number of backing options, too.
Paige won 128 games between the NLB and MLB and became the oldest rookie in MLB history in 1948 when he joined the Cleveland Indians. He will later be joined by 10 other pitchers, eight infielders, seven outfielders, one utility player, one manager and one owner.
These bobbleheads are truly going to be a piece of history – just like the Negro Leagues are. The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Dreams Fulfilled are serious about representing and portraying the legend and importance of the league – so you won’t want to miss out on these.
