About this title


If you are someone who remembers with great nostalgia the old crackerbox basketball gyms of Kansas--you know, those tiny courts with overhanging balconies, the wall for out-of-bounds--if you are the type of person who gets misty-eyed every time you see "HOOSIERS", then this is for you. 

"HALLOWED HARDWOOD" contains fifty-one stories of Vintage Basketball Gyms of Kansas built before 1950. They are photographed with an old coach, player, or interesting personality to tell great basketball stories of days gone by.  This unique book has stories of  small schools, large schools, colleges, city auditoriums, a prison, a warehouse.  Featured Hall-of-Famers include Dean Smith, Ralph Miller, John McLendon and small town heroes.

With more than 25 years of experience buying and selling out-of-print, collectible, and rare books, maps, and ephemera, I am now doing business from my home at 60 Poplar Heights Rd.; Chanute, KS 66720; U.S.A. by appointment only. I offer a selection of more than 5000 books of all genre, as well as more than 1000 maps ranging from 15th century to early 20th. All inventory is hand selected and believed to be of significance for the collector, the reader, the historian or the general book lover. Historically, I have specialized in Kansas and regional history, but also maintain quality collections of Natural History, Theology, Americana, Railroad, Travel and Exploration, Medicine, Art, and Psychology, Neurology, and Psychiatry. Fine bindings, plate books, signed and inscribed items are also an important part of my collections. Smaller, though intriguing collections of other genre are also a part of my holdings. Appraisal, consultation, and collection development services are available. Please come and browse, talk books, and have a cup of coffee in a relaxed and book friendly environment. But for the convenience of both of us, please email or call first. Trade terms available and dealers are welcome.
