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. The exhibit runs Jan. 24 through Feb. 10. Photo: Associated Press//Kathy Willens
