African-American sports heritage has become an exciting niche in sports history. Surviving memorabilia from obscure and defunct leagues are generating intense hobby interest. Presented are (2) 1941 “Negro Pro Basketball League” programs dated 1/12/41 and 2/2/41. These rare programs present in high grade with a crisp paper feel and clean off-white pages. Featuring the rosters of the Washington Bruins and the Philly Pros these programs are a fascinating look at the bygone era of segregation in professional sports. Of particular interest is a section in the February program touting the pending arrival Harlem Globe Trotters.
