The St Louis Cardinals have been providing fans with thrilling championship runs for decades; the one they were able to pull off in 2011 certainly ranks as their most improbable triumph, highlighted by a classic seven game showdown with the heavily favored Texas Rangers, who were one strike away from the title on two separate occasions in Game Six.

Reliving the Cardinals' most improbable championship season, courtesy of Rob Rains, will keep Redbird fans smiling through the long winter. 2011 will long be remembered as the season St Louis captured its eleventh World Series trophy - and stunned the baseball world in the process. I still don't believe it.

As a life long Cardinals fan it was a great book to relive the 2011 season. But the publisher should have taken a little more time editing it before sending it to the printer. The misspelled word on page 70 wasn't so bad; but they should have caught the fact that they repeated pages 72-75 on pages 78-81.

If you are a Cardinal fan, you must own this book. Of all the World Series Victories the Cardinal have had nothing like this run. Down and out at the end of August, then they went on a roll! Rob spells all this out in his book. Plus if you are like me and have an Ipad, OMG....the pictures are stunning as the Cardinals run.

No one knows the Cardinals like Rob Rains, so if you want the real story and the story behind the store, GET THIS BOOK!!!!!

After reading it straight through I started putting down my list of cousins, God-children, old friends from SBC 1962 and CBC 1958 etc when I realized this is THE gift if they love baseball, love The Lou, and love THE REDBIRDS .Get our young folks energized in THE GAME. Forget Brat races, sliding brewers, t-shirt cannonS and cheerleaders...WILD CARDS brings out the thrill of a come from behind Champion: RUDY; HOOSIERS; BREAKING AWAY; ROCKY and FIELD OF DREAMS......love underdogs? love squirrels? Love Stan the Man? OZZIE'S BACK FLIP; "GO CRAZY FOLKS GO CRAZY!!!!' Whitey ball vs. Tony Ball! Its all here.
How qbout El Hombre? THEY ARE ALL HERE IN THis ROB RAIN's EPIC...........I swear it even smells a little bit like Christmas (or is that Budweiser?)

This book is unreadable on the kindle, do not buy the kindle version. There is no way to enlarge the font to the point where the book can be read. This will not work on either the standard kindle or the Fire.

I will enjoy this book for years. It Is a great chronicle of the greatest season ever. It reminded me of the way the game was meant to be: a game, not a bidding war to buy pennants.
I bought several books as gifts and all the recipients have thrilled at the retelling of the season.
The service was fast, efficient and the books arrived as advertised.

The book includes a lot of pictures of the different members of the team and their talk. If you would like to get some pictures of the cardinals, get it.

This book is a nice review of the 2011 season. It has great pictures. It was ordered for a 13 year old and is of such good quality I plan to order it for our middle school library. It will be a great read for Cardinal fans of all ages.
