The New Orleans Black Pelicans were a minor Negro League baseball team that played in the Negro Southern League. They were formed in 1926 to replace the New Orleans Ads in the league. They joined the Texas-Louisiana Negro League in 1930, and by 1935 they were an independent club. When the second Negro Southern League formed in 1945, the Black Pelicans were charter members, but did not affiliate with the league again until 1950. Their ace was Robert Pipkin who was also known as the Black Diamond.

Partial proceeds from the sale of this commemorative beer bat go to the Negro League Baseball Museum to support their mission of preserving and celebrating the rich history of African-American baseball and its impact on the social advancement of America.
