Baseball Fantography: A Celebration in Snapshots and Stories from the Fans


Baseball Fantography: A Celebration in Snapshots and Stories from the Fans Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Baseball Fantography is a celebration of baseball through the eyes of fans via photos theyve taken of players, ballparks, and related subjects over the past nine decades, along with essays, sidebars, and quotes. The project originated when the author discovered an old 1960s snapshot of himself as a teenager with his idol, Roger Maris, at Yankee Stadium. Realizing that he couldnt be the only one with these hidden photographic gems, he began collecting baseball photos taken by fans. The book contains more than 250 never-before-published images (Roberto Clemente, Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter, Josh Hamilton) in chapters on subjects like ballparks, spring training, broadcasters, dugouts, and baseball cards, and features contributions from baseball aficionados and notables like Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith, a 35-year veteran Topps baseball photographer, and a former president of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Praise for Baseball Fantography:

"The never-before-published shots are cool, offering a new look at the familiar." —New York Post
