The 2011–2012 volume in the Cooperstown Symposium series is a collection of new scholarly essays that use baseball to examine topics whose import extends beyond the ballpark. The essays represent 16 of the leading presentations from the two most recent proceedings of the annual Cooperstown Symposium on Baseball and American Culture, held on June 1–4, 2011, and May 30–June 1, 2012. The essays are divided into six parts. “Baseball History, Myth, and the American Past” considers the distinction between reality and remembrance. “Decade of Transition: The 1960s in Baseball and America” explores a critical passage in the evolution of the nation and the game. “Baseball Economics: Owners, Profits, and the Public” provides perspectives on sports as business. “Out of the Bleachers: Women Umpiring and Playing” links the game to those who participate and care about it despite the expectations of atavistic gender roles. “Casting the Game: Stage and Screen” examines theatrical and cinematic treatments of baseball. Part 6, “Game of Numbers: Statistical Baseball,” examines the sport and its artifacts quantitatively.
The hard-to-find information, sources, and addresses that collectors need for repairing, caring for, and finding buyers for antiques and collectibles are all in this book. To gather the information for this book, Ralph and Terry Kovel contacted more than 3,000 suppliers, clubs, auctions, services, and other industry sources around the country, making this the most up-to-date and complete reference of its kind.
