Geppi’s Entertainment Museum

February 26, 2014

Last summer my friend Dave and I went to downtown Baltimore to visit a little place called Geppi’s Entertainment Museum.

The Museum was opened in 2006 by Steve Geppi, who also started/owns Diamond Distributers (one of the largest distribution companies in the US) and contains pretty much his personal collection of comic, movie, TV and Baltimore history memorabilia.

The museum itself is approx. 16,000 square feet and is located at Camden Station at Camden Yards. Steve is also part owner of the Orioles…but before all this he was a simple comic book store owner who had dreams of bigger and better things. I used to buy back issues at his basement location (Geppi’s Comic World) on Edmonson Ave. in Baltimore when I was in grade school.

The frikkin’ place is huge and is full of so much vintage pop culture memorabilia it’s enough to make any fan boys head explode. Original 1 sheet movie posters, first edition/issues of comic books, bizarre Disney collectibles among a ton of other insanities. What follows is just a sample of the stuff inside, so I should just let the pictures do the talking…

My main objective was to see a lot of vintage Marvel Comics stuff, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed

Once again, this is just a smattering of what’s inside. There is so much cool stuff in there eBay would probably crash if this stuff ever went up for auction.

And don’t forget to shake Superman’s hand before you leave

So if find yourself at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and you need something to do, go visit Geppi’s Entertainment Museum and kill an hour or two. And if you’d like to get me something, I’ll take that Action Comics #1 if you don’t mind
