If you are an American baseball cards collector, come see what you are missing. If you a fan of Japanese baseball, come see great pictures of your favorite stars.
I spend hours paging through this book and expect that you will enjoy it as much as I have.
Diane C. Donovan, Editor
BUT the book itself does have a flaw. The pages are thick, heavy paper, sown together and very solid. But the wonderful cover is glued on and came right off after only a few days. I am NOT rough with my books and there is really nothing that could explain this outside of the fact that the glue became too dry to keep the cover on the book. This is a shame because if the book had a better cover or maybe was a hard cover book it would have made a great coffee book and a great gift to those interested in either baseball cards or Japanese baseball. It is kind of sad that they went cheap on such a major detail.
