Haile Selassie.jpg

From the Researcher's Notes

This is the back of an envelope sent in with a calendar order by a long time customer named, Haile Selassie. Haile has been an avid supporter over the years and has never failed to write this quote: "We Are the Ship, All Else the Sea.," on the back of his envelope. These words were also spoken by the Father of Negro League Baseball, Rube Foster, as he summarized the relationship between the Negro Leagues and Major League Baseball. We featured Rube Foster several times in our now defunct calendar, "BlackBall." We still have back issues, so if you're interested, send an inquiry and we'd be glad to inform you of what we still have in stock. -- IOKTS
