About Cooperstown Connection

Cooperstown Connection is headquartered in the birthplace of baseball, Cooperstown, NY.  For the past 18 years Vincent Carfagno, the company’s founder has operated the business on Main Street, just down the road from the Baseball Hall of Fame!  Over the years the operation has evolved from a 500 square foot baseball card store to the 5,000 square foot supercenter that it is today.  Today we also operate 3 mall locations in Central New York, including one in the Carousel Center, one of the premier malls on the East Coast.  Cooperstown connection offers a full range of sports apparel and specialty products from key chains to one-of-a-kind pieces of sports history.

A key theme to our business is promoting national, regional and local sports rivalries and using them strategically to promote continued growth.  We are able to customize our inventory to cater to any market in America.


"Since my 2002 Hall of Fame induction, I have trusted Vincent with my autograph signings in Cooperstown every year. Vincent is one of the good and honest people found in the memorabilia industry and anyone considering an involvement in Cooperstown Connection can do so knowing they will be partnering with one of the good guys in the industry."

~ Ozzie Smith,
   Baseball Hall of Famer

All of the merchandise we carry is officially licensed by the appropriate league or team.  All autographs are certified authentic by JSA, PSA/DNA or Steiner Sports.  Thanks to our long standing relationships with the biggest and best vendors in the industry including Reebok and VF Image Wear we are able to be versatile and change our marketing from season to season to maximize revenues from opening day, championship football games, bracket madness etc..  We can tailor our product to keep current with all the latest events and trends in the world of college and pro sports.

Through our “connection” with the game of baseball, we have developed relationships with legendary players who return annually for personal appearances at our stores.  These special events help generate excitement and awareness throughout the year.
