Description:

This specially-ticketed limited-engagement exhibition features some of the rarest and most important baseball cards in the history of the sport. Drawn from the Diamondbacks Collection, carefully and painstakingly amassed by Ken Kendrick, longtime collector and managing general partner of the Arizona Diamondbacks, The Ultimate Collection: Iconic Baseball Cards from the Diamondbacks Collection features 16 of the top 20 ranked sports trading cards in the entire world, along with an additional 25 highly-valued and prized baseball trading cards. The exhibition will include baseball’s rarest and most famous collectible: a T206 Honus Wagner trading card, once owned by hockey legend Wayne Gretzky. The roster of cards that compose the collection is truly staggering, including 16 of the 20 rarest and highly prized trading cards in the history of sports. The collection includes Topps rookie cards for Baseball Hall of fame inductees Mickey Mantle, Henry “Hank” Aaron, and Sandy Koufax. It also includes a rare Bowman 1954 Ted Williams card, along with cards representing some of the most legendary and iconic names in the history of the game, including Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Jackie Robinson, Lou Gehrig, Satchel Paige, Joe DiMaggio, and Willie Mays. It also includes a single basketball card: a 1986 Fleer #57 Michael Jordan card, considered by many to be the greatest player in the history of the NBA. The Ultimate Collection marks the first time Kendrick’s collection has been exhibited west of the Mississippi, and the first time it has been formally exhibited in its home state of Arizona. Previously, the exhibition was on view at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York for three years, before closing in 2013. This exhibition is organized by Phoenix Art Museum and is made possible through the generosity of Ken Kendrick and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
