For any baseball fan, a trip to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York, is the thrill of a lifetime—no matter how many times you visit. But whether you go only once in your lifetime or make the pilgrimage annually, you’ll never be able to see every treasure in the museum’s collections.

With Inside the Baseball Hall of Fame, readers can go behind the scenes to see seldom- or never-displayed items from among the 40,000 treasures in Cooperstown, in addition to some of the most important and popular items on exhibit at the museum—all gorgeously photographed in color. Captions written by Hall of Fame experts explain each object’s significance and relate unique stories associated with it.

Here are just a few highlights from the nearly 200 objects in this beautiful book:

An 1887 ball-strike indicator from the only season when it took five balls to walk and four strikes to strike out

Pitcher Harvey Haddix’s glove from the 1959 game when he pitched 12 perfect innings—and lost 1–0 in the 13th

Shoeless Joe Jackson’s shoes

The Wonderboy bat and trombone case that Robert Redford used in The Natural

Rube Waddell’s glove from his 4–2, 20-inning victory over Cy Young on July 4, 1905

The bat Joe Carter used to hit his 1993 World Series–ending home run
