1945 Negro League

1945 Negro League "Colored" Baseball Patch and Program

Prior to Jackie Robinson's breaking of baseball's color barrier in 1947, black players were consigned to playing in lesser leagues with far fewer amenities. This game-worn uniform patch from a 1945 Texas semi-pro league is unusual in that it has the player's name embroidered on the bottom (H.V. Tucker in this case). It measures 7x8," is made of wool and was clearly extracted from a uniform or jacket as there is glue residue on the back. Tucker is mentioned in the 1950 program from the SIXTH ANNUAL COLORED STATE BASEBALL TOURNAMENT in Texas, appearing on the roaster for the Crawford club. The 16-page program includes 13 team rosters, a scorecard, vintage ads and blank pages for autographs.
