Default A Look at Rare Baseball Books

The problem I have is that there seems to be very little available in the hobby-I have gone to major shows like those at Rosemount in Ill and with hundreds of dealers you may find only a couple that have books to sell. The only place I have been able to find anything is at a book site- so I am stuck with the high prices. Whats strange is that even though the product does not appear to move the price never comes down

Book dealers usually will come down a bit, but you will find better deals in our end of the hobby. Not necessarily steals, but fairer prices.

Dan- you should write an article about the Nebraska Indians. I've known about the team for many years as I have had cabinet photos on many occasions, but really don't know much about them. It could make for a great reference.

I'm not quite sure I would call this a book, more of a booklet.

I originally acquired this piece for our (my dad and I) RI Brewery advertising collection (blows my Sox collection away by a mile). Full of information on a variety of Leagues during the 1911 Season.

Obviously, to a beer and baseball fan, this is heaven...

The Smitty at the Ball Game does come with a dust jacket. I'll try and dig up a copy and post it. It's identical to the dust jacket, and is tough to find. I've only seen 4 or 5 dj's, despite the book itself being common as you stated.

Max, I didn't know that. I would love to see that.

Barry, I would love to hear details on what's in some of these books such as "Sphere and Ash" and also Sol White. I still have a copy of your 1998 auction in which the Sphere and Ash sold.

Sol's whites has been reprinted and can be purchased for less then ten dollars- well worth it, very interesting reading
Sphere and Ash also has been reprented but only in a limited run and is very hard to find
