The United States Playing Card Company, makers of Bicycle Playing Cards, has partnered with the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum to launch a Negro Leagues Baseball Museum Playing Card Deck, the Atlanta Daily World reports.
“The mission of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum is to help preserve the rich history of African American baseball and we are excited that BicycleÂ® has developed this deck to support our cause,” Bob Kendrick, president of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum said. “With partnerships like this, we will be able to share this history with generations to come.”
The museum, which is located in Kansas, City Missouri, receives $0.15 for every deck sold.
