We worked closely with World Series champion, Cy Young Award winner and one of the famed ‘Black Aces’, CC Sabathia to bring you this powerful collaboration. CC coordinated the program and acted as Creative Director. We partnered with the Major League Baseball Players Association, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and our partners at Jackie Robinson's family to make this collection come to life.
Proceeds from all sales will benefit the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum’s efforts to preserve and celebrate the rich history of African American baseball and its significance in the social advancement of America at large. Furthermore, when legendary former players are featured in the collection, proceeds will also go directly to them or their estates.
While playing for the Kansas City Monarchs in the Negro Leagues, Jackie was making people take notice, he was undeniable. “Robinson is a natural athlete. One of those rare fellows who does everything well instinctively. He tips the scale at 190 pounds and is as fast as greased lightning.” According to Joe Bostic of New York City’s Amsterdam News, “he did everything but help the ushers seat the crowd.” Jackie Robinson was a superstar in waiting.
