Lexington's 300th: Official Trading Cards are Available

Attention: Collectors! The first 300th Official Trading Cards have landed in Lexington. Initial Trading Card subjects were selected to draw attention to the exciting events that will take place Memorial Day weekend, including the Old-Time Baseball Game and Time Capsule Ceremony.  
The first cards were shared at the Patriots’ Day Parade. There, volunteers handed out more than 12,000 free cards. An additional 6,200 cards were distributed through Lexington’s public schools.
Elementary and middle school students are receiving a card that features the blue Lexington Old-Time Baseball Game "L" logo. The logo is inspired by the 1887 baseball team uniforms depicted in a photograph from the Edwin B. Worthen Collection at Cary Memorial Library. High School students are receiving both a Time Capsule card, depicting the “People’s Time Capsule,” and the Historic Baseball Card, featuring a photo from the Worthen Collection. These cards will help students begin a collection. 
Collectors of all ages who have caught trading card fever can find cards at the Town Clerk’s Office, the Cary Memorial LibraryCrafty Yankee, and Michelson’s. Additional distribution partners will be added over upcoming weeks at
The card collection is sponsored by the 300th Anniversary Committee's Publicity Team. Each card is a limited edition and only available while supplies last.  Future cards are in the works and will surely add to the fun! To become a distribution partner, or to help fund future cards, please contact Jessie Steigerwald at
