The exhibition of rare and high-grade baseball cards belonging to Arizona Diamondbacks owner Ken Kendrick is attracting visitors, many of whom are in Phoenix to take in spring training activities.
On display at the Phoenix Museum are 41 cards from Kendrick’s “Diamondbacks Collection” worth millions. They’ll be there through April 24. The exhibition in Phoenix marks the first time Kendrick’s collection has been exhibited west of the Mississippi.
The collection includes the controversial PSA 8 T206 Honus Wagner card and some of the other “best of the best” examples of iconic cards—primarily baseball.
A media tour was held this week and Kendrick was there to discuss the hobby, including the four cards from PSA’s list of the Top 20 sports cards of all-time that he doesn’t have but is hoping to acquire including PSA 10 copies of the George Mikan and Roberto Clemente rookie cards, a high-grade 1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski and Wilson Franks Ted Williams.
He also talked with MLB.com about the connection of certain cards to moments that are important to him.
