The Jewish Baseball Card Book was written by, and for, baseball lovers.

“What began as a tribute to the history of Jews in baseball through their cards evolved into a history of baseball cards itself,” says Martin Abramowitz, whose not-for-profit Jewish Majors Leaguers helped produce the publication.

The Jewish Baseball Card Book also includes images of Jewish umpires, team owners, general managers and broadcasters. Its author, Jewish Baseball Museum curator Bob Wechsler, calls the tome “a collector’s Bible.”

Old Testament, of course.
