The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum has unveiled a new logo to commemorate the institution's 75th anniversary next year. This is to mark the 74th anniversary celebrations for the organization going on in June 2013.

The diamond jubilee logo will take inspiration from the iconic plaques of the players enshrined in the Hall of Fame's location in Cooperstown. The design for this logo includes the Hall of Fame symbol, which is inlaid with bronze of a big facet-cut “75”, along with a diamond baseball bordered between the years 1939 and 2014. This design is filled with laurels to denote the honor that comes with earning a place at the Hall of Fame.
