The players are Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Christy Mathewson, Babe Ruth and Honus Wagner. Find baseball cards of these great players at the The Baseball Card Store.

Brief History of Baseball's Hall of Fame

Hall of Fame Hall of Fame Hall of Fame Hall of Fame Hall of Fame

From humble beginnings, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum has become one of the nation's most recognizable and popular educational institutions. The Hall of Fame Museum is located in the pastoral village of Cooperstown in central New York State, nestled between the Catskill and Adirondack mountains, 70 miles west of Albany, the state capital.

Located on Main Street, the Baseball Hall of Fame officially opened its doors on June 12, 1939. Cooperstown represents a step back in time, with buildings dating to the early 19th century and orange geraniums hanging from classically-styled streetlights. More than 350,000 people travel to the Village each year to pay tribute to our National Pastime by visiting the Hall of Fame, an institution which honors excellence, preserves history and connects generations.

A claim that U.S. Civil War hero Abner Doubleday invented baseball in Cooperstown was instrumental in the early marketing of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
