Bobby Allison  A Racer's Racer (Author Signed, Allison), Allison, Bobby & Tim Packman
1 Allison, Bobby & Tim Packman Bobby Allison A Racer's Racer (Author Signed, Allison)
Sports Publishing LLC 2003 1582617236 / 9781582617237 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Signed by Bobby Allison. CD is unopened like new. Dust Jacket now in Mylar Protective Cover. Beautiful rare collectors grade copy of this book. When traveling amongst the racing circles of drivers and fans alike, the mere mention of Bobby Allison causes excitement. And, rightfully so, too. He's not only one of NASCAR's 50 Greatest Drivers, the 1983 Winston Cup Series champion and tied (so they say) for third on the all-time win list at 84 victories--he is a true legend of the sport. His accomplishments on the track are still heralded and referred to as reference points in many record books. Bobby is a self-made legend--not much ever was handed to him that he didn't earn through talent and determination. Few will doubt or offer debate that, too. He has so many stories to tell that sharing them at only racing banquets, among friends and the fornutate fans who happen to run into him just doesn't seem fair. This book is a collection of his favorite stories and happenings that occurred during his illustrious career. And, the best part about all these stories is they are all told in his own words. When Bobby ! Allison tells a story, people stop and listen. Some of Bobby Allison's favorite stories of his life and times - on and off the various tracks he thrilled so many fans - is now available for you to enjoy. If you're looking for a smile or laugh from a true racing legend, then this book is for you. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 200 pages; Signed by Biographee

The Red Runners A sequel to The Cazanova Treasure (Author Signed), Hawkins, Seckatary
13 Hawkins, Seckatary The Red Runners A sequel to The Cazanova Treasure (Author Signed)
Cincinnati Robert F. Schulkers 1926 Later Printing; First Impression Hardcover Very Good in Poor dust jacket Illustrated by Carll B Williams Signed by Author
Published by Author. Inscribed With all good wishes, signed Seckatary Hawkins. Dust has staining and chips, now in mylar dust cover. Book in very good condition with minor edge wear an stored in an archival slipcase. Very Rare inscribed copy. Seckatary Hawkins is the fictional lead character of a series of children's novels authored by Robert F. Schulkers. The eleven novels were first published between 1921 and 1932, although many appeared first in serialized form in The Cincinnati Enquirer and hundreds of other newspapers around the country. The eleven novels are Stoner's Boy, Seckatary Hawkins in Cuba, The Red Runners, The Gray Ghost, Stormie the Dog Stealer, Knights of the Square Table, Ching Toy, The Chinese Coin, The Yellow Y, Herman the Fiddler, and The Ghost of Lake Tapaho.Schulkers further popularized the series through a nationally syndicated NBC radio broadcast from Chicago and an extensive number of Seckatary Hawkins clubs in larger metropolitan areas. The official club name was "The Fair and Square Club". The club slogan was "A quitter never wins and a winner never quits". Except for Seckatary Hawkins in Cuba and The Ghost of Lake Tapaho, the setting was a river bank that was a composite based on Schulker's familiarity with segments of the Ohio River, the Licking River, and the Kentucky River. Seckatary Hawkins, a fat boy with a cowlick, recorded daily minutes of the adventures of a remarkably organized group of boys. The group of ten or so boys (some boys rotated in and out of the club) had their own club house on the river bank, complete with a stove for heat, a telephone, and even an organ for the required singing practice. Their enemies were formidable. Some had rifles, drove cars, and most were guilty of a number of felonious acts.While never the president of the club, Seckatary Hawkins was clearly the smartest member and the leader. He was regularly called upon by the books' few adult characters and many of the youthful ones to solve various mysteries and to keep the river bank safe. Most of their enemies in the end went home to their mothers or ended up in the school for bad boys. A few reformed during death scenes.Seckatary Hawkins has a small cadre of loyal followers still today who have, under the guidance of one of the author's grandsons, re-established a "Fair and Square" club.The author's books have always enjoyed an enthusiastic readership, the most notable Harper Lee, who mentions two of them in her classic To Kill a Mockingbird. Extremely rare. ; Illustrations; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 336 pages; Signed by Author
