    Must Buy for New & Established Collectors

    Easy to read and learn how to make collecting baseball stuff easy and fun to do. There are 6 approaches to collecting, the in-person, mail approach, networking with other collectors, online networking, purchasing at auctions and dealing with reputable dealers. And Duke Snider, a legend with the Brooklyn Dodgers provided a commentary for this wonderful book. Super gift for the holidays & all year round.
