Description
An excellent coffee table–sized registry, this chunky album presents two-page biographies of every ballplayer inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in its first 75 years, organized by field position. Each profile includes a full-page portrait of the player, an engaging anecdotal account of his career, and an image of his Hall of Fame plaque. Even better, each section begins with an original essay by a Hall of Famer who played that position: Hank Aaron, George Brett, Orlando Cepeda, Carlton Fisk, Tommy Lasorda, Joe Morgan, Jim Rice, Cal Ripken Jr., Nolan Ryan, and Robin Yount.

"Captures all 306 Hall of Famers in both biographical essays and spectacular photos, many of which can only be found in the Cooperstown shrine itself. It's kind of like a walk-through of Cooperstown."—NYDaily News

"A treasure for baseball fans ... [and] a reminder that even though so much information is available now online about baseball's greats, it's still a gift to have their stories and photos in one giant package."—San Diego Union-Tribune
