Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Everything you ever wanted to know about the above subject is included in this eighty-page book. Illustrated with full-color photographs, the book covers all kinds of memorabilia, the preferred condition of memorabilia, collecting in cyber space, team shops, clubs and reasons for collecting. The book jumps right into a discussion of collecting die cast cars with no mention of the history of this growing hobby. Some knowledge of NASCAR racing might be helpful, as the author or editor have assumed that little explanation of some terms is necessary. Plenty of resources are provided for stretching your interests in this fast-moving sport/hobby. This book is definitely for the serious collector. Other books in the "Collecting Sports Memorabilia" series cover collecting baseball cards, baseball memorabilia and comic books. 2001, Millbrook Press, $25.90. Ages 10 up. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-While there are a number of print sources for the amassers of baseball cards and such, this appears to be a "first" for NASCAR collectibles. Owens's conversational text covers a plethora of memorabilia, from die-cast models to cereal boxes to signed chunks of race-car debris. The author's advice could be invaluable to novice collectors. He includes sample letters for uncertain correspondents; addresses of fan clubs, race shops, collectible manufacturers, and museums; and suggests books, magazines, and Web sites. Glossy full-color photos are scattered throughout. This title should open new avenues for NASCAR lovers, and will save the uninitiated a good deal of effort-and money.-Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
