This book was a delight to read and will be a great reference in the future. The authors did a thorough, scholarly research effort and it shows in the quality of the information in the book. Though the focus is on autographs, I felt the background on the players and other history was worth the price of the book alone. A must for autograph collectors and of great value to anyone interested in the Negro Leagues of American baseball history. Congrats to the authors on an outstanding job!
The book not only gives you a run down of the players career and their history but shares with the reader the variations in the signature that transpired from playing days to reunion times. Gives a scarcity report on the autograph besides the price range value. Superb reading!!
I bought this book on a referral from someone with extensive knowledge on the subject. The book exceeded my expectations and has become an important studio reference for a baseball artist and player like myself. The signatures contained in Kevin Keatings book are identical to signatures in my Mom's treasured 1942 Cuban Baseball autograph book. See my paintings from that era on my website jorgedelarastudios(dot)com
I got this book because I collect autographs, but I enjoyed reading the book for the short bio written about each player. It's easy to read all about the famous Negro Leaguers, but in this book you can learn a lot about some of the lesser known, but very good players. I think this book is great for both autograph and baseball history buffs.
