Before heading over to MetLife Stadium for the 2014 Super Bowl, we’re stopping by the Metropolitan Museum of Art for some old school football. In honor first Super Bowl to be held in the New York Area, the Met is displaying a selection from the 303,000 vintage football cards donated by Jefferson R. Burdick in 1947. With cards dating back to 1894, this collection helps express the importance of football in America’s history. Along with the cards, photos dating all the way back to the varsity teams who played before the national league was founded are on display. If you are as obsessed with American history as we are, you will love this exhibit.
Check out the Gridiron Greats: Vintage Football Cards exhibit at the Met, on display until February 10th.
