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.
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.
