Book Description
At an auction that followed the 1998 season, a single baseball sold for more than $3 million. Around the country, hats, bats, cards, jerseys and photos have likewise sold for hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars, and posh auction houses like Sotheby's in New York have become familiar venues to dealers and private collectors. And with the mounting number of challenges to the game's most honored records and the passing of some of its most beloved and recognizable names, baseball memorabilia is increasingly in demand. This book instructs both the hardened hobbyist and the uninitiated in the best ways to obtain autographed baseball memorabilia, providing insider information on making person-to-person and mail requests, purchasing from dealers and online auctions, and trading and networking with other...


Suicide Squeeze
Victor Gischler

Mass Market Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The idea of the repo man as crime solver has been popular since Joe Gores's San Francisco series; Bill Eidson is a recent convert. Now Gischler, who earned an Edgar nomination for his debut, Gun Monkeys (2003), gets in on the act with his third novel, which features a down-at-the-heels repo man, Conner Samson, who's hired to take back a sloop, the Electric Jenny, from its defaulting owner, Teddy Folger. Folger has burned down his comic book and baseball card store in Pensacola, Fla., for the insurance, and now plans to sail away from his old life—and wife—on the craft. But what Conner soon discovers is that an almost priceless treasure, a baseball card signed in 1954 by both Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe, is hidden on the Jenny—and that a Japanese collector with a team of deadly ninjas will...

From Publishers Weekly
A distinctly American style of home design—marked by twig art, natural log railings, bunk rooms, rustic furniture and covered porches—gets enthusiastic treatment by Obomsawin and Battaglia in this attractive yet functional book. As inspirational as it is prescriptive, the work celebrates not only the forms and lines of Adirondack architectural style (which, Obomsawin explains, "blends with nature's own structural décor"), but also the environs in which such architecture is typically found, which abound with rock formations, mountains and lakes. Obomsawin (The Arts & Crafts Cabin; etc.) does provide some building plans and technical detail, including diagrams of vertical log siding, floor plans for an upstairs loft complete with multiple bunks and a reading nook, and renderings of multiple...

From Library Journal
The popularity of collecting autographs has spawned a number of autograph guides, including George Sanders's The Sanders Price Guide to Autographs (Alexander Bks., 1996), which many consider the leading source, as well as several of Baker's more specialized books on the topic, e.g., All-Sport Autograph Guide (Krause, 1994). This guide's introductory chapters cover Colonial and Revolutionary Americana, and there is a separate treatment of those most sought-after autographs--from musicians, astronauts, presidents, and sports figures. A useful chapter, "Understanding the Value of an Autograph," includes a market analysis of the last two decades. The pricing sections comprise more than 400 pages, with each famous name accompanied by retail prices for the signature in four basic categories: a signature alone, on a...
