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 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 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 names in the history of the game, including Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Jackie Robinson, Lou Gehrig, Satchel Paige, Joe DiMaggio, and Willie Mays, plus a 1986 Fleer #57 Michael Jordan card.
Back in its home state of Arizona, this is the first time Kendrick’s collection has been exhibited west of the Mississippi.
