Earlier this fall, Baseball BBQ joined up with an array of baseball artists and small business makers launching a special fundraising art and product collection to benefit the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. Launched as part of the Negro Leagues Centennial, the community-led Virtual Art Show and Sale from October 4-10th raised over $25,000 through the sale of original art pieces and fan-gear for the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
To continue its success, the campaign returns for the month of December to honor the rich history of the Negro Leagues, legacy of the teams and players, and their impact and inspiration to the sport. A percentage of sales from all participating makers and artists will be donated directly to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and player foundations. Our art, and their voices, will live on through your support.
So we proudly tip our caps for the Negro Leagues 100th Anniversary, and reopen the Limited Edition NLBM Collection of customized Baseball BBQ tools that pay homage to 6 classic teams of the Negro Leagues. These limited-edition grill tool sets feature laser-engraving of the teams and logos on hardwood bat handles that replicate the dimensions and feel of a well-made bat. They will be available only December 1-31, 2020 on BaseballBBQ.com, and 20% of each sale will be sent as a donation the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
For more information on the collection, please read on and shop the NLBM Limited Edition Collection beginning Dec 1.
