League: Negro National League
History: Owned by Hall of Fame husband-and-wife ownership duo Abe and Effa Manley, the latter being the first woman inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, the Eagles played home games at famed Ebbets Field while representing Brooklyn in the Negro National League during their only year of existence in 1935. Before the 1936 season, the Manleys bought the Newark Dodgers and consolidated the two clubs under a new name, the Newark Eagles.
We recommend washing in a gentle cycle and laying flat to dry in order to preserve the felt work.
