COOPERSTOWN, NY – The support of millions of baseball fans around the globe ensures the history and memories at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum will be preserved forever.

Now, Hall of Fame supporters can experience that timeless connection themselves through the Museum’s new Lifetime Membership.

For the first time ever, the Hall of Fame is offering fans the opportunity to enroll at a membership level guaranteed to last throughout their lives. The one-time membership fee of $1,939 ensures members remain connected to Cooperstown with lifetime subscriptions the Hall of Fame’s official magazine, Memories and Dreams, and the annual Hall of Fame Yearbook. Lifetime Membership also includes the annual lapel pin each year, 10 percent discounts at the Museum Store, catalog and shop.baseballhall.org, plus complimentary Hall of Fame admission for life.

Lifetime members will also receive a personalized engraved Lifetime Gold Membership Card. The $1,939 price point reflects the year in which the Hall of Fame welcomed its first visitors in Cooperstown.
