When one reads of what Conlon went through to capture those photos and subsequently store them, it is even more amazing that these pieces of baseball history survive today for our educational enjoyment. One regret is that the major leagues were not integrated during Conlon's time and thus there are scant photos of Negro Leaguers similar to what's in this book.
I recall giving this book to a coworker to browse through on his work break with the intent that he could take it home and peruse it at his leisure. He wound up spending the next hour+ being absorbed by this book. So I guess I'm to blame for contributing to his poor productivity that day :-)
I have not enjoyed a baseball this much since the companion book to the PBS "Baseball" series!
The photographs here are truly amazing when you consider how poor the technology of the time was. Other books on old time baseball force one to suffer through really bad period photos. There isn't a bad one here. Conlon was truly an artist!
If you love history, baseball, or really good photography you will love this book.
