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 bought this book when it first came out in 1993, and I still enjoy looking at the photos and learning vicariously about a different era. If you love baseball and baseball history, and if you love photography that captures the unposed, this is a good book to own.
