NEW YORK (AP) — Two jazz museums are getting in on the World Series action.

New York City's Louis Armstrong House Museum and the American Jazz Museum in Kansas City, Missouri, announced a friendly wager on the games between the Mets and the Royals.

If the Mets win, the Louis Armstrong museum will receive a basket full of jazz-related treasures from the American Jazz Museum. Among them will be the "People's Journey DVD story of Kansas City's historic 18th & Vine Jazz District and photo prints from the museum's archives.

If the Royals win, the American Jazz Museum will be showered with Louis Armstrong's Ambassador CDs, giclee (zhee-KLAY') prints from its Jack Bradley Collection and several notable books on the jazz great.

The directors of both museums expressed confidence in their team's victory.
