Casey at the Bat: A Ballad of the Republic Sung in the Year 1888

by Ernest L. Thayer

The famous poem about an exciting baseball game in Mudville first appeared in the newspaper The San Francisco Examiner in 1888. The illustrations here turn this into a cool scrapbook, featuring baseball cards, tickets and more. A great book for baseball fans of any age.
