THE STRIKE-OUT KING STRIKES IT RICH!

Joe Stoshack lives for baseball. He knows everything there is to know about the game — except how to play well. His specialty is striking out. Joe feels like a real loser, and when he takes a low-pay job cleaning a bunch of junk out of his neighbor's attic, he feels even worse--until he comes across a little piece of cardboard that takes his breath away. His heart is racing. His brain is racing. He can hardly believe his eyes. Joe has stumbled upon a T-206 Honus Wagner--the most valuable baseball card in the world! And he's about to find out that it's worth a lot more than money. . .

In the middle of the night, Joe wakes up to find himself face-to-face with the star of the 1909 World Series--Honus Wagner--one of the greatest ballplayers who ever lived. . .and they're about to travel through time on an amazing journey that will change both their lives forever.THE STRIKE-OUT KING STRIKES IT RICH!
