John Liepa has gathered baseball cards for over 50 years. John’s collection now includes photographs, autographs, books, and memorabilia of most of Iowa’s approximately 214 baseball players who have made it to the major leagues, including many cards and photos of six of the seven “Hall of Famers” from Iowa. His presentation combines his passion for Iowa history and baseball. As a tribute to Iowa’s first major league player, Cal McVey, John wears an 1869 Cincinnati Redstocking uniform during the program.
