Sit back, flip through the pages and enjoy reliving the most unique year in bowling history. In the early 1960's one man's dream became reality and the National Bowling League was born. NATIONAL BOWLING LEAGUE - ONE YEAR WONDER chronicles the only time in history in which bowling was played patterned after other professional sports with salaried teams bearing the names of their host cities, a team nickname and their own colors and logos. The result of over 5 years extensive research by the author of SPORTS LOGO GUIDE, there is no other book which tells the story of this league which only played its inaugural season: 1961-62. Peruse the book's pages, learn the history, details and trivia and see the photos available nowhere else. Read how teams came to be called the Orphans, Smoggyland Bulls and Minnesota Vikings. Find out about the world's wildest draft, which included a 53 year old roookie, Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra. Follow the exploits of colorful characters that filled the rosters such as the iceman Big Train, Lollipop, Stoneface and Buzz.
