The keyboard of bond legend Bill Gross’s Bloomberg terminal will soon be a piece of history.

The keyboard will be on display as part of the Smithsonian’s “American Enterprise” exhibition and become part of the permanent collection, according to Peter Liebhold, chair and curator of the division of work and industry at the Washington-based National Museum of American History. Accompanying the keyboard are two Beanie Babies -- a bull and a bear that were draped over Gross’s monitors at Pimco -- and a pair of fuzzy dice representing “his beginnings as a professional blackjack player,” Liebhold said.
