Historic Negro Leagues Imagery

Obverse: The obverse of the coin gives us a subtle message. The design depicts a determined player--a batter--who is shown awaiting a pitch. Beneath him is a bus that we understand was the home of the players as they traveled. They were subjected to racism and struggle as they often couldn't use hotels and restaurants at that time. The bus is a symbol of perseverance in the face of adversity.

Reverse: The reverse of the coin gives us a classic image of five baseball players wearing twenties-era uniforms. The attitude of the group is nearly palpable in their "Let's Play" demeanor.
