Take a fun look back at Quacker Oats, Blisterine, and more classic packaging parodies—plus an interview with creator Art Spiegelman! Known affectionately among collectors as “Wacky Packs,” the Topps stickers that parodied well-known consumer brands were a phenomenon in the 1970s—even outselling the Topps Company’s baseball cards for a while. But few know that the genius behind it all was none other than Art Spiegelman—the Pulitzer Prize–winning graphic novelist who created Maus. This treasury includes an interview with Spiegelman about his early career and his decades-long relationship with the memorabilia company—as well as a colorful compendium that will bring back memories of such products as Plastered Peanuts, Jail-O, Weakies cereal, and many more. Illustrated by notable comics artists Kim Deitch, Bill Griffith, Jay Lynch, Norm Saunders, and more, this collection is a visual treat, a load of laughs, and a tribute to a beloved product that’s been delighting kids (and adults) for decades.

All it takes is one dramatic winning shot to transform Eddie Holder, a high school basketball player, from a humble and considerate student into a selfish and egotistical monster. And now, thinking that he's "dope" on the basketball courts, Eddie decides to drop out of school to pursue his hoop dreams. Consequently, he'll do anything to reach his goal, even if it means alienating everybody including his former best friend and teammate, Richie Sykes, and selling his soul to the devil. When things veer totally out of control, a fast-thinking, fun-loving and colorful character named Slamm Dunkk and the "Spirits of Basketball Past," "Present" and "Future" pay a visit to Eddie and take him by the hand and hoop to a mysterious and alternate realm, forcing him to examine his past, present and alternate future. Based loosely on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, Eddie must decide which path he must choose and confront all his demons-internal and external-before he really "dribbles" his life out of bounds.

How Baseball Cards Became an American Obsession

“An entertaining history of baseball cards . . . An engaging book on a narrow but fascinating topic” (The Washington Post). When award-winning journalist Dave Jamieson’s parents sold his childhood home a few years ago, he rediscovered a prized boyhood possession: his baseball card collection. Now was the time to cash in on the “investments” of his youth. But all the card shops had closed, and cards were selling for next to nothing online. What had happened? In Mint Condition, his fascinating, eye-opening, endlessly entertaining book, Jamieson finds the answer by tracing the complete story of this beloved piece of American childhood. Picture cards had long been used for advertising, but after the Civil War, tobacco companies started slipping them into cigarette packs as collector’s items. Before long, the cards were wagging the cigarettes. In the 1930s, cards helped gum and candy makers survive the Great Depression. In the 1960s, royalties from cards helped transform the baseball players association into one of the country’s most powerful unions, dramatically altering the game. In the ’80s and ’90s, cards went through a spectacular bubble, becoming a billion-dollar-a-year industry before all but disappearing, surviving today as the rarified preserve of adult collectors. Mint Condition is charming, original history brimming with colorful characters, sure to delight baseball fans and collectors. “Jamieson explores the history of card collecting through an entertaining cast of characters . . . For anyone who can recall being excited to rip open their newest pack of cards, Mint Condition is a treat.” —Forbes
