IF YOU’RE ANYTHING LIKE ME, then you are very discerning about the graphics on the t-shirts you wear. With that in mind, I am proud to have teamed up with Team Brown Apparel to produce a line of t-shirts paying homage to the great Negro League teams of the 1930’s and 40’s. Using the iconic graphic style of the pre-World War II era, I created a different design for each of the six Negro National League teams.
Wearing the same pinstriped uniforms as their white counterparts, the New York Black Yankees were a fixture of the East Coast Blackball scene from 1931 to 1948. One of the Black Yanks’ owners was Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, the tap dancing genius and Shirley Temple’s co-star in many Hollywood classics. A die-hard baseball fan, Robinson would sometimes jump up on the Black Yankees dugout roof and break out in an impromptu tap dance. While they often hosted sell-out double-headers at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, the Black Yankees called Paterson, New Jersey’s Hinchliffe Stadium their home throughout most of their existence.
Available in Men’s sizes S-4XL and Women’s S-2XL, these shirts are officially licensed by the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum (NLBM) and produced and sold by Teambrown Apparel.
