Items from one of the hobby’s greatest collections of baseball memorabilia and cards is going on display ahead of the 2021 MLB All-Star Game.
History Colorado and the Rockies Baseball Club are putting the items on display in an exhibit called Hall of Legends. The exhibit will run from July 10-18 at the new Rally Hotel at McGregor Square, just across the street from Coors Field.
It’ll be the second time in the last few years that collector Marshall Fogel has lent items from his collection for a local exhibit. Among the items on display is one of the three PSA 10 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle cards, now likely worth more than $10 million.
The last time Fogel’s card was on public display, it famously arrived by armored car. It’s one of only three ’52 Mantle cards ever rated 10 by PSA.
Other memorabilia on display is the jersey worn by Joe DiMaggio when he hit his last home run in the final game of his career at the 1951 World Series, a game-used bat and glove from Hank Aaron, a program from Jackie Robinson’s 1947 debut and about 30 other pieces.
While the exhibit runs for eight days (closed on July 13), the Mantle card will only be on display July 10, 11 and 12 before returning to its home in a local bank vault.
Youth attending the exhibit will receive free baseball cards at the conclusion of their visit.
All proceeds benefit the Colorado Rockies Baseball Club Foundation to support underprivileged and at-risk youth. Advance tickets ($10) are available online and in person at The Rally Store, located at 20th and Wazee.
There’s a 200 table card show in the works for Denver that week, taking place inside the National Western Complex in Denver July 9-11.
