Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Covering the last years of the Yankees' golden age, 1949 through 1964, former Sports Illustrated photographer Newman's images, many shot in color before it was routine to do so, are transfixing. Whether capturing the players, the game, the locker room, or the fans, Newman's details and nuance took sports photography to a new level and are also valuable as social documentation of an era that didn't seemed so imbued with character at the time. Silverman's (former editor, Sport magazine) considerable and heartfelt text is the perfect complement to the images. For all public libraries.
