From the archives of the National Baseball Library in Cooperstown, New York, here are thirty fascinating photographs of the players of the so-called Negro leagues. From 1897 until 1945, when Jackie Robinson signed a contract with the Brooklyn Dodgers, black players were not allowed in the major leagues. So the Negro leagues were formed, with their own regional leagues that met in their own world series. This book of postcards is a lasting tribute to these legendary stars of baseball. 30 duotone photographs.
