When you pick up a baseball card, do you wonder about the player whose picture is staring back at you? What was he like? What did he do after baseball? This curiosity is especially true with the famous T206 card set, now at its 100 year anniversary, and arguably the most fabled baseball card set in history.

The set was released between 1909 and 1911 and contains the most valuable trading card in the world, the legendary Honus Wagner. Beyond Wagner, the set also contains other Hall of Fame members

A great book for anyone who collects cards or loves baseball's dead ball era. Detailed career information and a short biography for every player who has a card in the T-206 tobacco card series printed from 1909-1911. Of course the Wagners, Cobbs, Browns, Mathewsons and LaJoies are covered, but it is the about the minor stars, bit players managers and career minor leaguers that round out this book. Just a pure joy to read and own.
