Posted By: <b>Bob Pomilla</b><p>On another site, in a post about nostalgic things that once were and are no more, a poster made mention of "negro league baseball games". Is anyone familiar with these?

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Were they speaking of something like a board game? Or perhaps they were just thinking of actual Negro League games?

Posted By: <b>Bob Pomilla</b><p>It isn't clear, Dan and may well be a reference to actual games. Just wondered if anyone could confirm the existence of a board game. Does't seem like it would have been a money maker, though.

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>I personally have never seen or heard of one. I'm almost certain if there had been one that we'd have seen it in a Mastro/REA type auction at least once in the past 10 years.

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>It's not in Mark Cooper's book either, and I have never heard Mark speak about any Negro League Baseball Game.

Posted By: <b>Joseph</b><p>Even without the context of the reference, we can conclude the poster was not talking about board games. The key is the use of a plural (ie game<b>s</b>). <br /><br />As a baseball board game collector, I can assure you that the discovery of a SINGLE board game would get me (and a few others I know) on an airplane to see it.

Posted By: <b>Bruce Dorskind</b><p><br /><br />We have collected ultra rare Negro baseball memorabilia for more than<br />30 years. We have never seen nor heard of a baseball game with<br />images of Negro players.<br /><br />We own the earliest known cigar box with a cartoon image of black<br />players. It dates to 1887. We also own a cigar box with an image<br />of the Louisville Negro team which dates to the first decade of<br />the 20th century.<br /><br />Should one want any more detailed information, we would suggest<br />contact Larry Lester at the Negro League Museum in Kansas City.<br /><br />Best<br /><br />Bruce Dorskind<br />America's Toughest Want List

Posted By: <b>Rhys</b><p>Bruce<br /><br />Do you have an e mail for someone at the Negro League Museum who could help me identify a piece I own. It is a team photo of either the 1921 or 1922 Cleveland Tate All Stars, or the Toledo team and I would like to see if any additional players can be ID.<br /><br />Rhys<br /><br /><img src="http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff129/prewarsports/tatenegro.jpg">
