New York & Cleveland: World Publishing, 1970. A true classic: candid and funny, this remains as one of the greatest sports "tell-alls" of all time. Edited by Leonard Shecter. This is a Very Good copy of the First Edition (stated First Printing). Blue cloth binding, lightly sunned at the margins. Clean text; 400 pages. The dustjacket is complete and unclipped; shows wrinkling at the edges but not chipped. This copy would be graded a bit higher but there appears to be a "ghost" offset from the dustjacket lettering to the spine, resulting in another "Ball Four." Quercus notes this as two titles for the price of one, and houses it in an archival plastic protector. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. Dust jacket present. First Edition.
