Summary
Devereaux presents rare, colorful baseball cards that celebrate the first decades of the great American sport. Selected from the Library of Congress's Benjamin K. Edward Collection, these cards bring to life an era of American history that saw the game explode in popularity as the sport spread to nearly every corner of the country. In showing a history of sports cards, Devereaux shows the ways the cards have shaped and influenced U.S. culture. -- adapted from back cover
