GRIDIRON GREATS: A University of Southern California 1952 card of football star Frank Gifford, the New York Giants’ No. 1 draft pick, is shown Jan. 8, 2014, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The cards are part of a pop-up exhibition at the Met celebrating football’s history through the ages with vintage trading cards. The 150 cards, including a series from 1894, are part of approximately 600 cards from the museum’s vast collection of sport trade cards donated to the Met by the late hobby pioneer Jefferson Burdick.
