As the repository for Reds history, the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum presented by Dinsmore maintains a collection of more than 16,000 artifacts dating from 1869 to the present-day, including uniforms, game-used equipment, correspondence, programs, photographs, baseball cards, pennants, autographed items and more. The museum’s comprehensive renovation in 2019 provided a beautiful new home in which to display these pieces of Reds history, and those not on display are carefully kept in the museum’s vault.
The museum’s Artifact Preservation Fund affords for the preservation of this incredible collection. Each item is catalogued, archived, and prepared for display within the museum and beyond. Artifacts have traveled to minor league ballparks, local displays in Cincinnati, and throughout Reds Country to tell the storied history of the first all-professional baseball team.
Your contribution to this fund serves multiple purposes:
- Preservation of the Museum’s Collection
- Exhibition of the Collection
- Research and Acquisition of New Artifacts
We hope that you’ll consider a contribution to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum’s Artifact Preservation Fund so we can continue to bring the rich history of Reds baseball to current and future generations of fans.
