The world class museum and baseball-themed club was formed in 2007 welcoming not only fans but also playing host to dozens of notable speakers such as Johnny Bench, Mike Schmidt, Reggie Jackson, and Randy Johnson to name a few.
Larkin, a Cincinnati Reds shortstop in the 1980s and 90s who was elected to the Hall of Fame eight years ago, consigned numerous career awards, game-used gear and other items.
His 1990 World Series trophy netted $32,312, his 1994 Gold Glove Award went for $11,750 and four Silver Slugger awards brought a combined $37,600.
