A series of books published by a dedicated collector and baseball historian helps collectors and researchers.
Fans of baseball history have a friend in Mark Stang.
The author of "Baseball by the Numbers", a history of players and their uniform numbers, also has a half dozen team histories in print.
Utilizing purchased photos and public records, Stang tells the stories of several of baseball’s oldest franchises through images he’s reviewed and selected.
The books have been a hit with baseball fans…but also collectors of game-used memorabilia who can use the photographs in their research.
Stang, too, is a collector. He’s been turning out some high quality baseball books and he’s not done yet.
In a recent interview, he chatted with Dave Grob about the history of the books and a lot more.
