"Baseball: America’s Homerun" 

June 27, 2020, through January 8, 2023, at the National Postage Museum

"What does a national postage museum have to do with baseball?" I hear a disembodied voice ask. The National Postage Museum has hundreds of U.S. and international stamps commemorating great players and famous moments, as well as original artwork and archival material from the Postmaster General’s Collection in the United States Postal Service. They're also being loaned tons of baseball artifacts from other museums and the Baseball Hall of Fame. More details at the exhibition's site here.
