"The T206 Collection: The Players & Their Stories neatly recounts the human stories -often triumphant and sometimes tragic - of the ballplayers immortalized in the Tobacco Trust’s famous ‘white border’ set. In so doing, it enriches the experience of the card collector and entertains the sports fan.”
"The legendary T206 set comes to life in this brilliant book. The stories of these men, especially those who toiled in obscurity in the minors are especially compelling and achieve a measure of immortality in these pages.”
"Baseball fans will spend hours absorbed in this book, appreciating the artistry of the cards, as well as poring over the history of each player. The book is a grand slam. Long live Dolly Stark, Jack Bastian and all of the other long forgotten Texas Leaguers you are bringing back to life.”
“The legendary T206 set of cards is all yours for the grazing, studying, in this remarkable book that tells the stories, sad and soaring, of the players in Tobacco Trust's 'white border' set.”
