For those, like myself, who love the game in its purest form, this walk down memory lane is like taking a vacation to baseball paradise.
Yeah, the "memorabilia" are just reproductions, but so what? It's great fun to examine scorecards from a few World Series games, look at various tickets to the games, see what an old-time contract looks like, have an autographed team picture or two, etc. - Great stuff!
Ruth was a rough character but the pictures in here with the Bambino and family and admiring young fans are just fantastic. He was a simple, yet complex man, if that makes sense.
This book is well worth the $30 retail price but it's going for one-third of that here and one-third of that at Barnes & Noble. Considering all you get, and the classy presentation, this is one of the better "bargain books" you'll ever see.
