Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine
Edition: 1st Edition
Hardcover 1st printing of the 1st edition - a very good+ copy in a very good+ dust jacket. Very nice, (collectible/giftable) copy of this memoir by the great Hall of Fame baseball pitcher who started his career in the Negro Leagues, before joining the major league Cleveland Indians in 1948. Paige was as well known for his "homey sayings" and, as the sub-title puts it, "the hilarious story behind the legnd", as much as for his pitching prowess. "I never figured I'd be some kind of symbol. Well, if I was, I had to admit I was a little rusted up. You get rusted when you got to come all the way from the slums of Mobile, Alabama; from hiding from truant officers and cops, from reform school." BW photos. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-14014490853
