National Ballpark Museum, Denver

#12 of 24 in Museums in Denver
The original goal of the National Ballpark Museum was to concentrate on ballpark memorabilia. Bruce Hellerstein meticulously acquired artifacts, bricks, postcards, jerseys, books, pictures and more. The collection grew to house seats from all the classic ballparks.

Some of his most significant collectibles include:

The light fixtures from the marble rotunda entrance to Ebbets Field, the home of the Brooklyn Dodgers

The arched window and cornerstone from Forbes Field, the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The “NY” drainage cover that Mickey Mantle tripped over in the 1951 World Series that permanently injured his leg.

Tribute to CO Baseball history

Autographed baseballs and bats

And much more...

The legacy of National Ballpark Museum is to pass on the passion and love for our National Pastime and its ballparks.

May all your baseball dreams come true!
