Here are a few pics Marshall sent over concerning a new display of photography and baseball cards in the Denver Art Museum. I believe this might be the first time baseball cards are featured in an Art Museum.....It's always nice to see our hobby get some good press and be put in a positive light. (thank goodness I just got hi speed DSL) regards

Isn't the Burdick collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art? Presumably, it was on display at some point.

I might have forgotten about the Budick one as it's probably not been on public display for quite a while....Whereas this one is on display now, of course..... regardless of that fact I think anything that portrays our hobby in a positive light it is a good thing. There is much more joy I get from collecting than angst....and that aspect is not always brought to light....

Both times I've been in NYC the Burdick collection was on display- it's in a small hallway between 2 big halls, on the wall. I was told they rotate the items regularly- when I was there 3 years ago it was some T205's, '35 Goudeys, Remars, and some early '50's Topps and Bowmans.

I walked by the Denver Art Museum last weekend and didn't even walk in. Wish I'd known, looks like a good show.

That is great that he has done this. I am sure it will be a wonderful exhibit in general and great for the hobby.

Bits of the Burdick collection are on display. I was there this past April. They had six glass cases up. One of 4 OJ Cabinets, one of T206 Wagner, one of T206 Plank, one of 1933 Goudeys, one of 1940 Play Ball, and one of an oddball set from the late 30's that had Lou Gehrig. There were probably about 50 cards total on display. I took pictures with my camera phone, but don't know how to transfer it anywhere.

Looks like a cool exhibit. It's not listed yet at the Denver Art Museum website (not that I could find anyway) but a little digging revealed that the show runs until Sept 30.

great photos! thanks for sharing.

the burdick collection is regularly rotated at the Met. as anthony mentioned it is usually displayed in a long hall behind the egyptian temple room (as seen in "when harry met sally"). didn't burdick donate his whole collection to the Met?

The whole collection is there, but only a few pieces are on display at any one time.

The main collection is kept in a back room, and access is apparentely really tough. Adam Warshaw had a great post about viewing the collection when he was working on his book- perhaps someone can link the post.
Sorry for the hijack, it's really nice that Mr. Fogel lent his collection (part of it, anyway) for everyone to view.


edited for spelling and to add link


Here's Adam's post-

Representative examples from The Burdick Collection are always on
display. Said examples are sometimes rotated.

Baseball cards are also on permanent display at The Smithsonian Museum
in Washington ( a national museum) and in the Boston Public Library Collection.

As patron members of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, we have attended
Several special exhibitions where a number of cards from the Burdick Collection
were displayed.

In fact, we have had several conversations with the Museum's curator
about the possibility of displaying other pieces from prominent collections.

There is a private print room which requires special access. It is
now quite difficult for the general public to arrange a visit. However,
it is well worth the effort. A number of samples from Burdick's original
collection were sold to Charles Bray, who in turn sold them to the
renowned British collector, the late Sir Edward Wharton Tigar.

It was in the aforementioned print room, where we first met Sir Edward Wharton
Tigar in 1979. Sir Edward was undertaking research for Volume IV of his
now legendary. World Tobacco Index. We were conducting research for
an artilcle which appeared in a national magazine.

Upon his death. Sir Edward Wharton Tigar donated his collection to The
British Museum. Whilst we are not aware if any baseball cards are currently
on exhibit, representative cards have been displayed in the past.

Later this month, the Museum of The City of New York will feature a major
exhibit entitled the Glory Days of Baseball. Said exhibit features many rate
items from the collections of Stephen Wong, Bill Gladstone as well as
from The Dorskind Collection.

We look forward to viewing the Denver Art Museum exhibit.

Received my copy of the Museum of City of NY "exhibit companion" from Amazon a couple of days ago. Haven't had a chance to read the text but gave the pictures a once-over and was stoked big time. Lots of photos I'd never seen. Players, fans, stadiums, memorabilia, bb cards etc. There is a full page color picture of a young Don Zimmer that is worth the price of the book by itself. And how about that photo of Clem Labine finishing a warm-up pitch in a crouch. Bloody lovely! At first blush the book is right up there with some of the keeper "coffee table" baseball books like Classic Baseball Photographs by Donald Honig and Baseball as America by the gang at National Geographic, both personal favorites, as well as A Coffee Table Book about Coffee Tables by Kramer (Haha! I wen' hijack my own post which is an aside to an aside already. Apologies to everyone over at the "A major problem" thread). It might help to have been a young New Yorker in those days (which some of us were) but I believe it will appeal to many of youse guys. The content is not strictly limited to the '47-'57 Glory Days; there's a bit on the earlier heyday stars and the later Mets.

As a follow-up to Bruce's post, there was a small display of Wharton-Tigar's collection at the British Museum last time I was there, though admittedly that was about five years ago. The surprising thing for me is that one of the items on display was a T206 Wagner.
