Baseball Cards for Books

A few months back I wrote about the Diamond Ruby card that author Joe Wallace sent me.  In that post I said that I'd show my two other baseball cards/promotion cards for books. Some 10 weeks later I'm fulfilling that promise.

At the 2010 Jerry Malloy conference I purchased a copy of Martha Ackmann's Curveball.  She signed the book and kindly gave me a card or two.

Orel Hershiser's Out of the Blue was one of the first books my wife gave me.  I found this oddball at a card shop in Illinois back in the early 1990s.

In the past few weeks I've cleaned out some of my reading back log.  A few more books to finish and then I'll reassess what I'll be reading next.  Maybe these two will make the cut.

  1. I still have a stack of the Hershiser cards. I was working in a bookstore when the book came out.
