The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum manages a dynamic licensing
program to create a wide variety of products to celebrate the
great legacy of black baseball. The museum owns the rights to
certain team names and has created a series of logos (the "retro
logo series") to help promote awareness of Negro Leagues
The museum has given permission to several companies nationally
and internationally to create everything from baseball caps,
jerseys, shirts, jackets, blankets, coffee mugs, and other items
using these logos. Many of these items are sold in the Extra
Inning Museum Store and at other retail stores. These companies
pay a ROYALTY, based on a percentage of their sales, to the
Revenues from royalties paid to the museum help sustain its
operations, continued growth, and education programming. When
buying merchandise, always look for the "authentic black
diamond" logo to insure that you are supporting the museum.
