One of our future releases took a trip to a local Seattle baseball field. We couldn’t help but draw a little inspiration from the man who helped elevate baseball to its on-high status, Willard Mullin. The Golden Age of Baseball: Drawings 1934-1972 collects for the first time Mullin’s best drawings devoted to baseball — depictions of players like Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Yogi Berra and the story of Mullin creating the Brooklyn Bum, the bedraggled mascot of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Whether you’re in the dugout, out ready to turn a play in the infield, or catching fly balls in the outfield, this hardcover book is full of great baseball gags and political comics. PLAY BALL!
