In honor of the first Super Bowl ever to be held in the New York area, the Metropolitan Museum of Art will present an exhibit of vintage football trading cards.
The 150 cards that make up the exhibit are part of approximately 600 from the museum’s vast collection of sport trade cards donated to the Met by the late hobby pioneer Jefferson Burdick.
The special pop-up show,"Gridiron Greats," will be on view at the museum from Jan. 24–Feb. 10, 2014.
