Babe Ruth...Yogi Berra..Willie Mays...
Here, for the first time, is the most definitive collection of baseball cards ever assembled. Organized by year, you get over 21,000 full color reproductions of Topps cards using a high-quality facsimile reproduction process especially developed for this purpose. Here are the lifetime statistics of over 4,000 baseball players-information on virtually every member of every team from 1951. And the authors have compiled year-end quizzes to test your knowledge of the sport and its cards.
From the glory days of all-time great sluggers like Mickey Mantle and Stan Musial and pitching heroes like Whitey Ford and Sandy Koufax, to Reggie Jackson, Fernando Valenzuela, Dwight Gooden, and Pete Rose.

Topps Baseball Cards is a huge, expensive photo collection of all Topps cards issued since their inception in 1951. Each year's selections come with a brief summary of the season and its achievers, a price range of the cards, and a quiz. An overall index includes records. The portraits are about half actual size and vary in format and clarity. For libraries that can afford it, this dazzling book is an appealing browsing item; those wary of mutilation may restrict access. For a comprehensive price catalog The Sport Americana Baseball Price Guide (Edgewater Book Dists., Box 586, Lakewood, Ohio 44107) is preferred. Morey Berger, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Freehold, N.J.
