Address: 1000 Fifth Ave. - 212-535-7710
Description: This selection of baseball cards from the collection of Jefferson R. Burdick includes such Hall of Famers as Ty Cobb, Honus Wagner, Tris Speaker, Eddie Collins, and Napoleon Lajoie -- who are still among the all-time hit leaders -- and the pitchers Walter Johnson and Christy Mathewson, who trail only the indomitable Cy Young in career wins. The exhibition also includes outstanding players who were never inducted to the Hall of Fame such as Smoky Joe Wood and Shoeless Joe Jackson, whose hard-hitting career ended abruptly after the 1919 scandal in which Chicago White Sox players participated in a conspiracy to fix the World Series.
Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
