Ready to launch is an online venue dubbed The National Pastime Museum – an impressive baseball collection available to all. As of now, five sections make up a timeline on the site: 1845-79, 1880-99, 1900-19, 1920-39 and 1940-52. The focus is on memorabilia and the stories behind the pieces on display.
