In 1939 celebrating the 100th anniversary of the game of baseball, the Hall of Fame produced a commemorative Centennial of Baseball Stamps set. The collection consisted of 25 various stamps of players and events.

The stamps are very colorful and accompanying them was a special album that collectors could use to store them in. Ironically, for such an important event, the Hall of Fame misspelled ‘Centennial’ on the stamps.

Still, the entity did a tremendous job in highlighting some key events and all of the best players up to that point in time.
