Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
Fair. We have been selling books online for nearly 20 years, so buy with confidence. This is a used book. It may contain highlighting/underlining and/or the book may show heavier signs of wear. It may also be ex-library or without dustjacket. All orders are shipped the same or the next day.
This book is an absolute gem,the stories are told in the old ballplayers own words as they were recorded by lawrence Ritter back in the early sixties.The accounts of the stars of the dead ball era give the reader a real insight into the character of the game played back then.

Ritter baseball classic
Lawrence Ritter is one of the leading writers
of baseball history, both oral and pictorial.
This is a warm account based on oral
histories of major league players from the
first half of the 20th century--not necessarily
Hall-of-Fame performers, but definitely those
who enjoyed, as adults, playing a kids' game
at the professional level of skill.
There's braggarts and there's humble men
here. Enjoy it for its "glory"--the statistical
accuracy may be lacking in some memories,
but the flavor and the emotions remain for
the reader to experience.
