A Baseball Card Book
I went out to dinner last night with a friend of mine, and afterward we stopped at Borders Bookstore because he had to return something. We ended up getting coffee and looking around at stuff. We picked up some random books, then I headed over to the collectibles section to see what was there. I grabbed a book called The Card, by Michael O'Keeffe and Teri Thompson. It is the story of two collectors who end up with the Honus Wagner a.k.a. Holy Grail card.
I managed to read through the first chapter in the store, and some of the second. I plan on re-reading it though probably tonight and seeing how far I get. Obviously this isn't a book most people can appreciate, except for people like me and you, the readers. So far I am enjoying this book, and I plan to post a review once I finish it.
If anyone has read this, I will welcome a discussion about it once I finish it. It was published in 2007 and I am sure many people have picked this up if they have seen it.
P.S. If you haven't registered for the contest, please read the previous post and put your name down to win.
