100 Greatest Hitters

Hard Cover. New York: Crescent Books, 1988. First Edition. Near Fine.


First edition, first printing. Signed by Mickey Mantle on half-title page, Yogi Berra on p. 14, and Stan Musial on p. 73. Publisher’s red cloth, titles in gilt to spine, bright red endpapers. Near fine with light wear to front board, tiny tear to cloth at front joint, and light nick to head of spine. Overall, an attractive book with a vibrant interior. 100 Greatest Hitters is a “survey that profiles the 100 hitters who, in one person’s immodest judgment, qualify as the best in the history of the game.” Players are presented in the book with short bios and photos. The players are ordered alphabetically, but the author ranks them on a page at the end of the book. Minks also co-authored The Encyclopedia of Baseball Managers (1990) and wrote books on a few important wars in history. This copy is signed by three Hall of Famers: Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, and Stan Musial. Berra and Mantle led the Yankees to seven World Series titles together in the 50s and early 60s (Berra won a total of 13 World Series titles in his career). Musial, one of the greatest hitters in MLB history, won three World Series titles and three NL MVPs.
