Negro Leagues Commemorative Design with Privy
Obverse: The obverse design on this issue is that of a Negro Leagues pitcher. He is captured immediately after he throws a pitch. The ball sails speedily away from the source. A baseball diamond privy appears at the pitcher’s knee. The Mint’s A.I.P. artist Matt Swaim is responsible for the design.
Reverse: The reverse design on this issue is a pitcher’s eye view of the ball traveling at speed toward a home plate crowded by an umpire, catcher and batter. The Mint’s Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) artist Don Everhart is responsible for the design.
