3 Frommer, Harvey New York City baseball The last golden age, 1947-1957
New York Macmillan 1980 0025417002 / 9780025417007 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Inscribed and signed by author. Rare. Dust has minor chips and some sunfading to spine. Now covered in mylar protective cover. ""More than ever before, baseball was the national pastime during the post-war years. It was a game with easily identifiable heroes in tempo with the rhythm of the times. For a nation eager for heroes, baseball met that need. For New York City, eager for entertainment after the lights went on again following the darkness of World War II, the Yankees, the Giants, the Dodgers -- their rivalry, their successes, their stars -- attracted the fanatical attention of millions. New York City Baseball recaptures the golden decade, 1947-1957, when the three New York teams -- at least one of whom played in the World Series every year but 1948 -- were the uncrowned kings of the city. More than just nostalgic, it is an exciting recreation of a passionately lived era a pulse-quickening play-by-play account of some of the greatest moments in sport and the people who made them happen." Editorial Review. ; Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 219 pages; Signed by Author
