Check out Kevin Johnson’s article on the 1928 Negro National League championship series between the St. Louis Stars and Chicago American Giants (originally published in the SABR collection Mound City Memories).

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference st. louis’s forgotten world champions:
The Defender also had good, play-by-play accounts of all the scoring along with other significant events in a number (though not all) of the games.

You're correct, the ECL teams were still playing practically a 'league' schedule. I called it the 'de facto' World Championship, but that may be a bit more than it really was.
The St. Louis Argus had very detailed play-by-play, and the Chicago Defender had good coverage (although neither had games 7 & 8 pbp or boxscores), but Gary may also have had other sources.

While I grant the Stars earned the championship of the NNL in '28, I'm not sure I'm completely comfortable with calling them world champions. I'm not sure that all the eastern teams, having lost their league structure but not the teams themselves, would have agreed had St. Louis laid claim to the title "World Champs".
All the same, great article.
BTW, the statistical coverage is excellent, Gary -- HBP, BFP, SF, CS, ERA, even DI for fielders. What papers were used as sources?

Batting, Pitching, and Fielding for the series compiled by Gary are also available from the link at the bottom of the article.
