From a young age, Gary Cieradkowski had a passion for baseball's unheralded stars. Inspired by his father and their shared love of the sport, Cieradkowski began creating "outsider" baseball cards as a way to tell the little-known stories of the game's many unsung heroes as well as some of its greatest players before they were famous. Meticulously researched and illustrated using a vintage-baseball card style, this book shines a light into the dark corners of baseball history--from Roberto Clemente's minor league days to Negro League greats like Josh Gibson and Leon Day to those you never knew played the game.
