NEGRO LEAGUES CENTENNIAL TEAM BOBBLEHEAD SERIES: Larry Doby

  • Price: $29.99 USD
Item Number: 2076441

Item Description

The Negro League Centennial Team (1920-2020) is comprised of 30 of the greatest African-American and Cuban players from 1895-1947 plus a manager and a team owner. Each individual is depicted on a baseball-shaped base with replica of Kansas City's Paseo YMCA, the site where the Negro National League was organized on February 13th, 1920. The bobbleheads are officially licensed by the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and approved by the families when applicable. Each player is individually numbered to only 2,020. This bobblehead is of Larry Doby, a member of the Newark Eagles. Doby was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998.

Doby is one of only two players along with Satchel Paige to play on the winning team in both the Negro World Series (Newark 1946) and the World Series (Cleveland 1948). Doby moved north in 1938 to attend high school enabling him to escape the worst of Jim Crow laws in the south. After the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Brown v Board of Education (1954), Democratic Senator Robert F. Byrd, Sr., of Virginia led the "Massive Resistance" campaign to keep Southern schools segregated, denying state funds to integrated schools and authorizing the governor to shut them down. A prolonged legal battle ensued, disrupting education for many from 1958 to 1968.
