Celebrating a Century of Inspiring Change
We are one of nearly 100 artists, makers, and small businesses standing together on our site and at NLBMart.com to tip our caps and celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the Negro Leagues. After a successful initial fundraising campaign in early October, the virtual art sale and benefit returns for the entire month of December. When you shop this limited edition collection from December 1-31, 2020, you become part of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum’s mission to preserve and celebrate the rich history of African-American baseball and its impact on the social advancement of America.
For this limited edition collection, we've created a series of customized Baseball BBQ tools that pay homage to 6 classic teams of the Negro Leagues, with laser-engraving of the teams and logos on the hardwood bat handles, which replicate the dimensions and feel of a well-made bat. When you purchase one of the Limited Edition NLBM Benefit Combo Sets between December 1-31st, we will donate 20% of each sale to support the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
Benefitting the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum
We see the story of the Negro Leagues as an important reminder of our divided past—and their 100-year anniversary as an opportunity to celebrate and be inspired by what unites us. The beneficiary of this campaign, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) is the world’s only museum dedicated to preserving and celebrating the rich history of African-American baseball and its impact on the social advancement of America. The privately funded, 501 c3, not-for-profit organization was established in 1990 and is in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri’s Historic 18th & Vine Jazz District.
