If you’re ever in the Cincinnati area, the Reds Hall of Fame is worth the trip. Located at Great American Ballpark, the club’s impressive history plays out among dozens of exhibits. Now, you can add baseball cards to the list of attractions.
Cinci-based online dealer Dean’s Cards is now sponsoring a historical display of baseball cards from the 19th century to today. The cards came from the company’s inventory of more than one million cards.
In addition, The Reds Hall of Fame has used enlargements of cards from Dean’s in various displays, including the new Joe Morgan exhibit to commemorate the unveiling of his new status later this year.
The company also produced a historical, baseball card-styled handout that will be included with every order and also sent to Hall of Fame members. The handout includes a QR code which can be scanned on a Smartphone or Tablet to go to an exclusive Reds Hall of Fame page where Dean’s can market its inventory.
Owner Dean Hanley says the goal is to take the sponsorship program to Halls of Fame in other cities.
