Spring Author Event: The Jewish Baseball Card Book
April 12, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Meet Bob Weschler, co-author of The Jewish Baseball Card Book.
The definitive chronicle of Jews in baseball through rich images of their cards, this coffee table book also follows the history of baseball cards. Illustrated with 698 cards depicting the first 170 Jewish major-league players from 1871 through 2016, the Jewish Baseball Card Book follows the evolution of trading cards from tobacco company issues of the early 1900s to modern designs, such as multiple images of 2017 World Series heroes Alex Bregman and Joc Pederson.
