Description by OLDIES.com:

This new collection of Walter Iooss's baseball images, with an introduction and section texts by the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Dave Anderson, features baseball superstars from Joe DiMaggio to Derek Jeter, as well as great moments from over the years.

Product Description:

Joe Dimaggio, Sandy Koufax, Cal Ripken, Sammy Sosa: more than mere athletes, these men, with their superlative physical skills, grace under pressure, and all-too-human foibles, rank as classic American heroes. Here, world-famous photographer Walter Iooss Jr. presents equally classic images of baseball greats of the past 40 years. Combining nostalgic postwar-era portraits with action shots of today's most popular players, and enhanced by the commentary of Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Dave Anderson, Classic Baseball offers the definitive illustrated account of the sport since the 1960s.

Special features like a six-page gatefold, collages created by Iooss exclusively for the book, and several never-before-published images make this the natural follow-up to Abrams' top-selling Baseball's Golden Age.
