The power of sports lies in the ability of athletes to rise above the challenge of their competitors and captivate humanity. With their universal appeal, sports have the potential to transcend race, color, nationality, and borders to unite the world on a spiritual level.
For as long as anyone can remember, no one area has so perennially affected our lives as much as sports. From the chariot races in the Roman Coliseum in 80 B.C to the unforgettable moment of seeing Muhammad Ali light the Olympic flame in 1996, sports have not only provided a vehicle for the healthy spirit of competition, but also a stage on which heroes can emerge. It is in these stadiums and arenas of history and the present that these titans of talent appear. The ball park is their Mount Olympus, sports are how they display their power…and SPORTS IMMORTALS is how they will forever be remembered.
The Sports Immortals Collection is the largest and most diverse assortment of sports mementos in the world. It represents the best of the human spirit. It is more than just uniforms, gear, autographs, photos, etc. It exists to ensure that the memories and achievements of the greatest athletes of all time will inspire us for generations to come.

A Great, Great, Great, Great Collection.
Joel Platt, who has long dreamed of creating a Sports Immortals Museum, has lovingly put together a collection of memorabilia encompassing all sports, and in so doing has preserved for all time objects important to our national heritage. We are deeply indebted to him.
Your Sports Immortals Museum sounds very interesting and should prove very rewarding. Many adults along with thousands of children will derive hours of pleasure. It is a wonderful thing and I wish you every success.
