Wow.........fantastic effort..........just a cursory glance at it almost made me take a 1/2 day from work today!

Hopefully the three authors will be participating in the autograph pavillion at this year's National......

I WISH that were the case. Ideally, I guess I could intercept the pacakge in our Worldport hub here that about a million pkgs go through a night but I'd have to drag my sorry ass out in the middle of the night to pick it up and ride a triple decker bus in about a mile or two and it'd be majorly illegal to do something like that to. So....just got lucky. Had it shipped to my UPS Store postal box and it was there when I picked up the mail today.

At the risk of looking foolish, where in the BST is the book listed?  I could not find sad.gif

It would have been worth it though right? happy.gif

I'm going to guess since you live right by the hub I'm not going to get mine until Monday. I'll be jonesing all weekend!

Could someone scan/photograph a page or two of the book and post it. I've been considering buying one, but lack the intestinal fortitude to pay the $125 sight unseen.

Anthony, if I get some time in the next few hours I may do so....I just barely got through skimming the first 50 or so pages and I'm knocked out...Some of those California League cards I've not seen before and they are awesome.

Anthony- I was fortunate to be able to view the proofs a few months back, and I will say this: imagine the best you might expect the book to be, and it will surpass that. It is jaw-dropping, both the pictures and the text.

Can someone post a scan?

I don't actually read baseball books, but base my purchasing decisions as to how good the book looks on my bookshelf happy.gif

Dan,



THANK YOU!!!



Just seeing those pages put an ear to ear grin on my face. MO, huh... well theres a good chance I'll have to wait until Monday. If they sold this book in the book stores I'd have been the first one in line to get it at my local Borders... I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Edited to add - Holy crap Dan, did you touch the pages with your BARE hands? No GLOVES? Ahhhh, sacrilege!!!

You're sad? My network at work screens out most jpgs on net54, and I can't even see the photos of the book until I get home happy.gif

Received book today. It's a fantastic book. I can't imagine all the work it took to put this project from start to finish. I thank all of you and I only have a few Old Judges.

Joe: One question - I didn't know that Gilligan (Detroit) existed in the 189-1 pose. Is this listed correctly in the book ?

Thanks again, I think it is worth the price.

Mike--Joe is away so let me answer for him. The pose exists as a Detroit N173; it is not known (according to the Cartophilic Listing) as an N172.

Could someone please scan the page/s on Abner Dalrymple and send them to me. I do not collect OJ's, but he was from my neck of the woods and would love to see what there is on him. Many many thanks. Douglas
