Fans of the former Negro League could have a chance to commemorate some of its stars through a series of bobbleheads.

The effort is designed to help mark the upcoming centennial of baseball's Negro National League, which began in Kansas City in February of 1920.

Supporters unveiled the first bobblehead, of pitcher Satchel Paige of the Kansas City Monarchs, while announcing the campaign on Wednesday.

The production of the rest of the licensed, limited-edition bobbleheads will depend on a Kickstarter campaign sponsored by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum and the Dreams Fulfilled, a group promoting the Negro League centennial.

The goal is to raise $10,000 by Jan. 7.
