Celebrate ten years of The Greater Wilmington Sports Hall of Fame (GWSHOF). Created in 2005, the GWSHOF is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to honor those persons who by their excellence in the world of sports have brought recognition and esteem to themselves and the Greater Wilmington Area.

The GWSHOF recognized its first class of inductees in 2006 and continues the tradition annually. They collect and retain ownership of memorabilia from inductees, and Cape Fear Museum preserves these objects under a repository agreement. This retrospective exhibit highlights ten of the most notable items from the GWSHOF collection.
