    Negro Leagues Baseball Fine Art Print: Safe at Home!

    26-1/2" x 18"

    This is an 26-1/2 x 18-inch giclee print of the "Safe at Home!" stamp from the 44-cent Negro Leagues Baseball commemorative stamps.

    On July 15, 2010, in Kansas City, Missouri, the Postal Service™ issued a 44-cent, Negro Leagues Baseball commemorative stamp in two designs, designed by Howard E. Paine of Delaplane, Virginia.

    The Negro Leagues Baseball stamp pays tribute to the all-black professional baseball leagues that operated from 1920 to about 1960.

    Considered the "father" of Negro leagues baseball, Andrew "Rube" Foster (1879-1930) established the Negro National League in 1920, the first successful league of African-American baseball teams. Although no longer a vital component of American baseball after about 1960, the Negro leagues led to lasting changes within the sport. The two se-tenant stamps feature a scene painted by Kadir Nelson of San Diego, California.
