This morning, to celebrate Black History Month, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum released very special Negro Leagues Mystery Bobblehead Boxes. The mystery boxes give people the opportunity to get random Negro Leagues Bobbleheads at a discounted price. Since 2019, the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum has worked with the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and Dreams Fulfilled to produce bobbleheads celebrating the players and teams of the Negro Leagues with proceeds going to the NLBM as well as the player’s families. The boxes feature a mix of over 100 different Negro Leagues Bobbleheads featuring dozens of different players and styles.

The Negro Leagues Mystery Bobblehead Boxes are now available in the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum’s Online Store at the following link. Here are all the details:

  • The Negro Leagues Mystery Bobblehead Boxes are available with one ($20), three ($50), or five ($75) bobbleheads per box with an $8 flat-rate shipping charge per order.
  • Fans who purchase multiple boxes will receive unique bobbleheads in each box with a maximum of 50 unique bobbleheads available given the limited quantities of many remaining bobbleheads.
  • The bobbleheads were all produced by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum in conjunction with the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and Dreams Fulfilled. Sales of the bobbleheads have supported the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and its mission.
  • Since 2019, the Museum released over 10 different series of bobbleheads including: the Centennial Team Series featuring 32 of the top players; the Vintage Series featuring 18 teams; the Field of Legends Series; the Field of Legends Full Color Bobbleheads; Hank Aaron Indianapolis Clowns Bobbleheads; Satchel Paige Talking Baseball Series; Indianapolis Clowns Female Players; Josh Gibson Special Edition Series; Satchel Paige Special Edition Series; Trujillos Series; Hall of Fame Series; and other Special Edition Bobbleheads.
  • The majority of the bobbleheads are individually numbered.
  • “We’re excited to be releasing these special Negro Leagues Mystery Bobblehead Boxes in conjunction with Black History Month,” National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said. “These boxes will give people a mix of some of our most popular Negro Leagues Bobbleheads from the past five years featuring legends like Satchel Paige, Hank Aaron, Cool Papa Bell and many of the other legends that played in the Negro Leagues making this a perfect opportunity to start a new collection or grow an existing collection.”
  • This is a special year for the Negro Leagues with the Negro Leagues MLB tribute game at Rickwood Field; the Baseball Hall of Fame Tribute to the Negro Leagues All-Star Game and Voices of Black Baseball Special Exhibit; and the celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the first Negro Leagues World Series. On June 20th, Rickwood Field in Birmingham, Alabama, will be the site of a special regular season Major League Baseball game between the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants. Rickwood Field is the oldest professional ballpark in the United States and former home of the Birmingham Black Barons of the Negro Leagues. On May 25th, the Baseball Hall of Fame East-West Classic will feature more than two dozen former big leaguers, with Ken Griffey Jr. and Ozzie Smith among the Hall of Famers who will serve as the East and West teams’ managers and coaches. The game will be part of a weekend celebration as the Museum opens its new exhibit The Souls of the Game: Voices of Black Baseball.
  • The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, which is located at 170 S. 1st. St. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, opened to the public on February 1st, 2019. The HOF and Museum also produces high quality, customized bobbleheads for retail sale as well as organizations, individuals, and teams across the country.
  • The NLBM is a privately funded museum dedicated to preserving the history of Negro League baseball in America. The NLBM was founded in 1990 in Kansas City in the historic 18th and Vine District, the hub of African American cultural activity in Kansas City during the first half of the 20th century. Since moving into its 10,000 square-foot home in November of 1997, the NLBM has welcomed more than two million visitors and has become one of the most important cultural institutions in the world for its work to give voice to a once forgotten chapter of baseball and American history.
