Description
From 1904 to 1942, Charles Conlon made some 30,000 photographs of baseball players in action, and created iconic images of the sport's glorious heyday. Following the publication of their 1993 album of Conlon's images, Baseball's Golden Age, Neal and Constance McCabe still had plenty of images to work with, and later uncovered a cache of brilliant, rare photographs—soulful, striking shots of Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, and hundreds of other major leaguers. In this sequel album, 200 photos are paired with captions that are small stories, based on contemporary reports and quotes from the players themselves, who spill the beans about famous scandals, divulge quirky characteristics, and tell little-known anecdotes.

"Baseball's Golden Age ... was a revelation in black and white, a time machine to the era of wooden ballparks, legal spitballs and manual typewriters.... Nearly two decades later, Neal and Constance McCabe have teamed on a worthy and riveting sequel."—LATimes

"With The Big Show: Charles M. Conlon's Golden Age Baseball Photographs ... the photographer gets a well deserved day in the sun. The more than 200 portraits here capture the soul of the early game—whether the subjects be stars or ... something less. The players have been long forgotten. Conlon's photographs should not be."—Sports Illustrated
