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 operate 3 locations in Central New York, including Destiny USA, 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.

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.
