How To Buy 21 Journal

HERE IT IS! Hot off the presses - the test copies of the Premier Edition of 21: The Illustrated Journal of Outsider Baseball. Each new issue will be a 20 page themed journal featuring 14 or more original illustrations and stories like you've gotten used to seeing here on the Infinite Baseball Card Set blog. The premier issue's theme is "Jewish Baseball Pioneers & Stars" and features 14 original drawings and stories exploring the contribution Jewish players have made to the history of the game. Sure there's Moe Berg, Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax in this issue, but I also tried to bring you players you might not be that familiar with, after all, isn't that what you've come to expect from the Infinite Baseball Card Set blog?

The players featured and illustrated are as follows: 

Lipman Pike - 1866 Philadelphia Athletics 
Jake Atz - 1902 New Orleans Pelicans 
Abel Kiviat - 1912 Olymics 
Guy Zinn - 1914 Baltimore Terrapins 
Al Schacht - 1919 Jersey City Skeeters 
Mose Solomon - 1923 Hutchinson Wheat Shockers 
Jimmie Reese - 1927 Oakland Oaks 
Hank Greenberg - 1929 Brooklyn Bay Parkways 
Coon Rosen - 1934 Friedman Boosters 
Moe Berg - 1934 Major League All-Stars 
Moe Franklin - 1946 Tampico Alijadores 
Sam Nahem - 1946 Brooklyn Bushwicks 
Mickey Rutner - 1950 Toronto Maple Leafs 
Sandy Koufax - 1953 Coney Island Parkviews

The journal is printed on glossy card stock and the illustrations are printed front and back, in eye-catching full color. This little book actually exceeds all my expectations and I'm very proud to unveil it today. Although this issue was written and illustrated solely by me, the future editions will be in conjunction with Scott Simkus, a fellow writer and researcher who shares my interest in the forgotten nooks and crannies of baseball history. Together we are finishing up the second issue of 21 which will be an in-depth look at the 1933 Pittsburgh Crawfords and will feature never-before seen statistics and 17 original illustrations.
