Anyone that’s been to an Orioles game since 2005 or even attended the National Sports Collectors Convention in 2010 or 2012 should have an idea of what this place was. It was located right outside of Camden Yards in the old Camden Station. You could view tons of artifacts from Baltimore’s sports history over the 22,000 square feet the museum took up. A few months before attending the National in 2010, I took a trip down there and went through it. That place was a great museum which housed some amazing relics.
Unfortunately the Sports Legends Museum closed it’s doors last fall. They couldn’t come to turns on a new lease. That prime location next to Camden Yards came with a hefty $28,000 per month rent. Depending on how you look at it I guess that amount could be big or small to some people. The Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation were/are the people that ran it. That is the same group which operates the Babe Ruth Birthplace And Museum. Some of the artifacts which were on display at the Sports Legends Museum are now over at the Babe Ruth Birthplace And Museum. A majority of the items are now in storage. They’re currently looking for a new location.
