• Winterthur will be featuring a rare Honus Wagner baseball card (ca.1909-1911) in an exhibit beginning March 9. The exhibit on sports memorabilia will also include a “Hans” Wagner cigar box. The card is a rarity because only 50 survive. The Hall of Fame shortstop had the card removed because, at the time, the cards came in packs of cigarettes and Wagner didn’t want kids to buy the smokes to get the card. Gregory Landrey, Winterthur’s director of academic affairs and organizer of the exhibit said seeing the card is “Like seeing a total eclipse of the sun…a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” The exhibit runs through June 17.
