Cooperstown - Annual HOF Induction Programs

Prior to 1981, Induction Programs were similar to folded scorecards & only available to those attending the Annual HOF Luncheon & Induction Ceremonies held at the HOF National Baseball Library - Because these were not available to the general public they are hard to find & considered Scarce to Rare

Beginning in 1982 the inductions were held outside & programs were available to the general public - The Sporting News published these in a multi page, stapled magazine format & were handed out to those attending the ceremonies

Unless noted below the Covers & Pages are in NM M Condition - Like New
