Auction to benefit Negro League Baseball Museum in Kansas City

Buster Olney had tweeted this and I want to put it out there as well. This is an auction of items that will benefit the Negro League Baseball Museum in Kansas City. Here is the auction link.

I have been in discussions with the curator of that museum to have my Jackie Robinson statue displayed out there this Summer in conjunction with the All Star game. It is a great museum. There is also a Jazz museum near that (16th & Vine) and that is very appropriate as KC was a huge hub of Jazz; as much as New Orleans and Chicago certainly. All Jazz roads led to, or through, KC at one time.

Please support this worthy and most excellent museum with whatever you can. Every little bit counts in preserving some important chunks of our history.
