166 backers pledged $20,744 to help bring this project to life.

A limited number of backers at the $49 level can receive an 8x11 photo of Minnie Minoso with Bill Veeck, signed by Minoso! Only five available! 

We are going strong with 8 days to go! Thanks to all our backers, and to those who have shared our project with your friends and family.
