I believe there should be a National Sports Card Hall of Fame & Museum. There are a lot of wealthy people in this country that collect sports memorabilia and put it on display, but I’m talking about a designated Hall of Fame for collectors and cards. Every year some of the best card bloggers and collectors could vote on which cards would be inducted. Perhaps at “The National” collectors could cast their vote to which cards get inducted each year. I would like to see this Hall of Fame be an actual building, not just in an online format. Just like other HOF’s, artifacts could be donated from collectors. Imagine walking into a room much like the room at the Baseball Hall of Fame, but instead of seeing plaques you see some of the finest sports cards in the world. Collectors could be inducted as well. There are a ton of old collectors that deserve to be in the Hall of Fame because of their great collections they started before there was even a market for cards. Can you think of the gift shop? It could be its own card shop packed with singles and boxes. The idea of a National Sports Card Hall of Fame & Museum is an interesting concept, and I would like to know what other collectors think.
