Exhibit Sponsors

Exhibit sponsors are especially critical to the Museum because we receive no government support for operations.  Besides contributing to a valuable cultural and educational resource, sponsors receive the added benefit of being publicly associated with the best known athletes in Mississippi history.

Exhibit sponsorships prices and recognition periods vary by exhibit.  Because of its private, non-profit status, all support to the Museum is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

For sponsorship information, please contact Rick Cleveland at 601-982-8264 or email us at

Among the Museum’s current exhibit sponsors are:

  • Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Jackson
  • Trustmark
  • The Ben Puckett Family
  • BankPlus
  • Con Maloney
  • Wendy’s
