At the Metropolitan Museum of Art, curator Freyda Spira gives NYC-ARTS a tour of the exhibition “Legends of the Dead Ball Era: Cards from the Jefferson Burdick Collection.” According to the curator, these colorful cards -- from a period of baseball around 1900 and 1919, when “the game was really about strategy and small ball” -- represent “a very significant part of American culture.”
