"Breaking the Color Barrier in Major League Baseball"

Pulled from the baseball card collection of Jefferson R. Burdick, an enthusiast whose archive now resides permanently at the Met, the 60 cards here highlight some of the first black baseball players—Jackie Robinson, Larry Doby and Satchel Paige included—to move from the Negro Leagues to the majors 65 years ago.
