Vintage baseball cards go on display at the Met

Dan Barry of the New York Times writes:

Now, as if to please wayward fans, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has reached into its bottomless duffel bag of curiosities to present an exhibition of early and extremely rare baseball cards. Rows and rows of long-dead ballplayers stare out from the past like the mug-shot denizens of the New York Police Department’s once-famous Rogues Gallery.

Legends of the Dead Ball Era (1900–1919) in the Collection of Jefferson R. Burdick will be on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art until December 1st.

I’d like to go see it soon, but I doubt I’ll have the chance until after baseball season ends.
