5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Cardinals Fans!, March 15, 2012
This review is from: The Ultimate Cardinals Record Book: A Complete Guide to the Most Unusual, Unbelievable, and Unbreakable Records in Cardinals History (Paperback)
This is one of the best books on the Cardinals I've ever read. Dan Moore's complete grasp on Cardinals history, from Pujols to the St. Louis Browns, is impressive, and he does a masterful job of making a book on statistics far from boring. This book is exciting and easy to understand, even for the casual fan, and really makes you appreciate the talent and tradition of this team. I would highly recommend this book for any Redbirds fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Just Kept Saying, "Whoa, that's cool.", January 18, 2013

This review is from: The Ultimate Cardinals Record Book: A Complete Guide to the Most Unusual, Unbelievable, and Unbreakable Records in Cardinals History (Paperback)
I bought this book for my father who consistently recites Bob Gibson statistics like the acts of Achilles. I managed to preview it before Christmas. Dan Moore did a great job. His prose animates dusty statistics and presents them in a more that palatable format. Other MLB teams could be so lucky as to have this man as their chronicler.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's All in Here, December 30, 2012
This review is from: The Ultimate Cardinals Record Book: A Complete Guide to the Most Unusual, Unbelievable, and Unbreakable Records in Cardinals History (Paperback)
If you absolutely have to have the most comprehensive record book on the St Louis Cardinals, you've come to the right place; it's all in here. Even if you think you know everything there is to know about your favorite team and its players; think again. Example: Lou Brock's career stolen base total with the Cardinals - 888. Pretty interesting, eh?

I also found it interesting that the great Stan Musial's career batting average of .331 is only good for fifth-place, all-time for Redbird hitters. Hornsby, O'Neill, Mize and Medwick all hit for a higher average than Stan the Man. Of course, the greatest Cardinal of all-time leads the team in hits, games played, RBI, runs, home runs, triples, doubles and walks. Just to set the record straight, when Musial was a young player he did indeed have terrific speed (despite what the author thinks), as most of his 177 career triples were garnered before 1952. The 1942 team was known as the St Louis Swifties for a reason, and Musial chipped in with ten triples - the first of seven consecutive double-digit totals for three-base hits (He led the NL five times in triples between 1943 and 1951).

With that pressing matter clarified, now go ahead and enjoy this wonderful guide to everything there is to know about the St Louis Cardinals. You'll love it!

This is a must have and must read for Cardinals fans large and small, young and old written by my favorite StL Cardinals author...Sir Dan Moore. See his, and other great under or unpaid writers work and excellent baseball analysis at Viva El Birdos (VEB) [...] or check out VEB Daily @ [...]

Go Cardinals!
