Our Vision

Collect every American baseball card made before 1980 and share the collection with the public and scholars to further knowledge and appreciation of American culture and history surrounding baseball, America's pastime.

Our Mission

Promote and facilitate the study and appreciation of American culture, history, and art through baseball cards.

We incorporated on January 1, 2013. The IRS has ruled that we are a tax-exempt ยง501(c)(3) public charity. We have no founding grant. Instead we plan to rely on many donations of cards to stock the museum and provide the operating funds. We don't know how long that will take, but this is our aspirational timeline:

April 2016 - First public exhibit at the Madden Library on the campus of Fresno State University

May 2018 - Rent museum space; Begin acquiring display hardware

June 2018 - Open museum; Begin offering memberships

June 2020 - Hire curator
