We worked closely with World Series champion, Cy Young Award winner and one of the famed ‘Black Aces’, CC Sabathia to bring you this powerful collaboration. CC coordinated the program and acted as Creative Director. We partnered with the Major League Baseball Players Association, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and our partners at Jackie Robinson's family to make this collection come to life.
Proceeds from all sales will benefit the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum’s efforts to preserve and celebrate the rich history of African American baseball and its significance in the social advancement of America at large. Furthermore, when legendary former players are featured in the collection, proceeds will also go directly to them or their estates.
“Don Newcombe’s influence on me is beyond words, I can’t even tell you how huge it was for me to meet him at the time I did in my career.” –Hall of Famer and member of the Black Aces, Dave Stewart
Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball, and his Brooklyn Dodgers’ teammate Don Newcombe created a club of his own four years later. Newcombe became the first black pitcher to win 20 games in 1951, making him the founding father of the hallowed Black Aces.
We celebrate “Newk” as the very first while paying homage to one of the most elite clubs in baseball!
