Cardboard Books bulletin: Boyd and Harris found!June 25, 2009
My own cardboard supplications will resume soon, I promise, but in the meantime I just wanted to take a second to pass along an article that was just kindly passed along to me. From time to time, I try to write about books on this site (under the “Cardboard Books” heading); I haven’t gotten around to appreciating the book mentioned in the article because I hardly know where to start in my appreciation. The authors wrote one of the best sports books ever and invented and perfected the genre I have spent the past few years happily exploring. Brendan Boyd and Fred C. Harris rule. Often I’ve wondered whatever became of these co-authors of The Great American Baseball Card Flipping, Trading and Bubble Gum Book, and this LA Times article by David Davis has the answer to that question.
