MLBP'S NEGRO LEAGUES LICENSING ROYALTIES TO BE UNVEILED
Published January 25, 1995
According to MLBP, the Negro Leagues Licensing program, officially launched at last year's Super Show, has been "extremely successful." From July through November '94, retail sales of Negro League merchandise totaled approximately $3.4M. As a pro bono program, 100% of the revenues generated from the sale of the merchandise is distributed to former Negro Leagues players, The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the Jackie Robinson Foundation. MLBP VP/General Counsel Don Gibson will present the checks to Don Motley, Exec Dir for the Negro Leagues Museum, Wilmer Fields, a former Negro Leagues player, and Rachel Robinson, Jackie Robinson's widow and Chair of the Jackie Robinson Foundation -- at a press conference to be held on Sunday February 5 at the Super Show in Atlanta (MLBP).
