About this Item

ASSOCIATION COPY, SIGNED, dated (1991) and INSCRIBED to the sportswriter Ray Robinson, by the co-author, the late DIck Schaap. Robinson used to edit a series of paperback baseball annuals. He included a contribution from a young Schaap in "Baseball Stars of 1959". 30 years later Schaap remembered this in his inscription: "I got more for this than I got for doing Bob Friend" for "Baseball Stars"." The full inscription takes up about half a page. Hardcover, later printing; fine in fine dust jacket. Autobiography of the multi-sport athlete includes "appreciations" by teammates Howie Long and George Brett (who writes "When I'm sixty or seventy, and my children ask me what I used to do for a living, I'll tell them, "I played baseball. I played with Bo Jackson"). BW photos. Note - like all other hardcover copies of this book, this copy has the PRINTED signature of Bo Jackson on the half title page. This is not a "hand signed" autograph. Don't let anyone try to tell you it is. 0.0. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-11469236165

About this title

Synopsis:

The candid autobiography of professional athlete Bo Jackson describes his troubled youth, his discovery of sports, his struggle to attend college, his athletic achievements, his family life, and his success on and off the field

From School Library Journal:

YA-- Bo Jackson plays professional baseball in the spring with the Kansas City Royals. He does it well. He plays professional football with the Los Angeles Raiders in the fall. He does that well. In his spare time, he does television commercials for Nike and other organizations. Now, this dynamic young man has written his autobiography, and has done it well. This is a fast-paced book with snappy dialogue, written in a frank, open, and honest style. Jackson minces no words about how he feels about people and events. He tells readers he was the bad Jackson kid who got himself turned around and made a success of his life. His love of family, his own and others, permeates the book. The language is street level; this is how Jackson talks. He is current news, and considering all the sports records he is breaking, his name will be news for a long time. Students reluctant to read will pick up this book. Not only does Bo know Bo--everyone knows Bo.
