Rod Carew is a hall-of-fame baseball player and one of the best hitters of all time. Through the 1960s to the 1980s, he amassed an impressive 3,053 hits. He attended 18 straight All-Star Games and still holds the Minnesota Twins best regular-season batting average with .388. In 1016, the American League batting title was named after him: the Rod Carew American League Batting Title. In this volume, his official memoir, Carew recounts his impoverished upbringing in a segregated Panama where baseball was an early escape, a passion, and a remarkable skill. Published in 1979, the narrative carries the young Carew through his career to its height, right after he had won the AL Most Valuable Player Award. For any baseball collector, this memoir is essential. It celebrates Carew’s life with honesty through co-author Ira Berkow’s engaging prose.

This first edition, second printing is in very good condition. In the original half cloth, very good with only minor rubbing and fading to edges. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, very good with only minor creases, small closed tears, and minor dampstaining. Price clipped.

A very good early printing of Rod Carew’s memoir.
