I am the target audience for this book.
[x] Similarly aged male as the author
[x] Baseball obsessed as a kid
[x] Baseball card collector
[x] Reads books

However, I don't think you need to be a (former) card collector and baseball fan to appreciate this story. I'd read a lot of Wilker's Cardboard Gods blog over the years and was excited to see it in book form. [If you haven't seen his blog and are a baseball fan then you need to look at it while you're still online.]

In the first few chapters of this book I was disappointed that it wasn't all about baseball, but was instead about this kid growing up. But it really grew quickly on me as a wonderfully written story about this kid growing up.
