At 2 p.m. CST, new bobblehead collectibles will be officially unveiled at the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City.

But these are more than just player-likeness in vintage uniforms, the bobbleheads being unveiled by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame in conjunction with the museum will be replicas of the statues in the museum's iconic Field of Legends display.

Bronze statues of players in different positions on a baseball field depicting an ultimate all-star team is one of the Negro League Baseball Museum's most iconic features, and now that mixture of hall of famers and fan-favorites will be available in bobblehead form — one of the top baseball collector's items for generations.

Three significant players featured are Satchel Paige, James "Cool Papa" Bell and Buck O'Neil.
