Negro Baseball League Bobblehead Commemoration Begins

The bobbleheads are coming!

Stars of the former Negro Baseball Leagues are being commemorated with a series of bobbleheads.

The Negro National League will be celebrating its 100th anniversary in February of 2020. Supporters unveiled the first bobblehead of pitcher Satchel Paige of the Kansas City Monarchs while announcing the campaign Wednesday.

Production of the rest of the licensed, limited-edition bobbleheads will depend on a Kickstarter campaign sponsored by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum and the Dreams Fulfilled, a group promoting the Negro League centennial.

The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is located in the 18th & Vine area of Kansas City, Missouri.

The goal is to raise $10,000 by Jan. 7
