Had this ball signed at Buck O'Neil Day at Kaufman Stadium back in the early 2000's. (They played the Twins in a weekend series) I've tried to research a roster, even sent a request to the Royals to find the exact list of players. No luck at this time. I've used the N**** League archives on Wikpedia to try and identify as many as I can, but I'm stuck. Attaching pictures of the ball and the names that (I think) I've been able to identify. Any help would be truly appreciated.
Here is what I have.
Ernie Johnson (Ernest) P ; KC Monarchs 1949-53
Art "Superman" Pennington , OF; Chicago Giants, Pittsburg Crawfords, Mexican League , 1940-50
Bill Bell (William) KC Monarch, Birmingham Black Barrons 1949-54
Jesse Rogers c; KC Monarchs 1953-54
George Altman OF; KC Monarchs 1955
Ulysses Hollomon P; Birmingham Black Barons, Baltimore Elite Giants; 1948-1956
?? Diego Segui -can't find any record of playing int he N**** Leagues although he did play with the KC A's
newly identified-Thanks to "brcdad"
Bob Motley - Umpire
Bill Van Buren - 1953 Monarchs

The others are pretty much unknown. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Rick
PS
I also have a ball with Buck Oneil's signature by itself.

If you don’t get any help here you may want to check out some Facebook groups. There is one called “Just Baseballs” where they might be able to ID the signers. There is also “Out or Safe” which will let you know if the signature is authentic.
