What was once a dream for George Randazzo is now a reality, an Italian American Sports Hall of Fame. A collection of boxing trading cards and memorabilia jump started the whole museum and his love to support children wanting to follow their own dreams of making it big.  Over 250 inductees enshrined in the Hall of Fame. To date, the organization has raised over $6 million for scholarships and charitable causes. There are priceless artifacts lining the walls include Mario Andretti’s Indy 500 racecar, Rocky Marciano’s first heavyweight championship belt, Vince Lombardi’s last coat worn as coach of the Green Bay Packers, and swimmer Matt Biondi’s Olympic Gold Medals.
