Visitors will also experience the extraordinary opportunity to view more than 500 baseball cards known as the “T206 White Border Set.” Miller’s collection of these vintage cards is noted for its rarity and superlative condition, and includes a Joe Doyle “error card” as well as the coveted and rare Honus Wagner card. Another highlight is a special urban landscape by Guatemalan artist Dario Escobar which shows the downtown Detroit skyline.
