    House Of Cards: Baseball Card Collecting And Popularculture
      House Of Cards: Baseball Card Collecting And Popularculture.

      Explores The Connection Between Baseball Card Collecting And Nostalgia Among Men Of The Baby Boom. "collectors Often Decried How Money Had Ruined Their Hobby, Making It Hard For Them To Form Meaningful Friendships Through Their Cards. Money, However, Made The Hobby Not Only Profitable But Also More Serious, More Instrumental, And Therefore More Manly. The Same Collectors Who Complained About Greed Often Bragged In The Same Interview About The Value Of Their Cards. Yet Money, In Turn, Made The Hobby Less Akin To Child's Play And More Like Work: Lonely, Competitive, Unfulfilling, And Alienating". Baseball Card Collecting Carries With It Images Of Idealized Boyhoods In The Sprawling American Suburbs Of The Postwar Era. Yet In The Past Twenty Years, It Has Grown From A Pastime For Children To A Big-money Pursuit Taken Seriously By Adults. In A House Of Cards, John Bloom Uses Interviews With Collectors, Dealers, And Hobbyists As Well As Analysis Of The Baseball Card Industry And Extensive Firsthand Observations To Ask What This Hobby Tells Us About Nostalgia, Work, Play, Masculinity, And Race And Gender Relations Among Collectors. Beginning In The Late 1970s And Into The Early 1990s, Baseball Card Collecting Grew Into A Business That Embodied Traditional Masculine Values Such As Competition, Savvy, And In Dustry. In A House Of Cards, Bloom Interviews Collectors Who Reveal Ambivalence About The Hobby's Emphasis On These Values, Often Focusing On Its Alienating, Lonely, And Unfulfilling Aspects. They Express Nostalgia For The Ideal Childhood World Many Middle-class White Males Experienced In The Postwar Years, When They Perceived Baseball Card Collecting As A Form Of Play, Not Amoneymaking Enterprise. Bloom Links This Nostalgia To Anxieties About Deindustrialization And The Rise Of The Civil Rights, Feminist, And Gay Rights Movements. He Examines The Gendered Nature Of Swap Meets As Well As The Views Of Masculinity Expressed By The Collectors: Is The Purpose Of Baseball Card Collecting To Form A Community Of Adults To Reminisce Or To Inculcate Young Men With Traditional Masculine Values? Is It To Establish "connectedness" Or To Make Money? Are Collectors Striving To Reinforce The Dominant Culture Or Question It Through Their Attempts To Create Their Own Meaning Out Of What Are, In Fact, Mass-produced Commercial Artifacts? Bloom Provides A Fascinating Exploration Of Male Fan Culture, Ultimately Providing Insight Into The Ways White Men Of The Baby Boom View Themselves, Masculinity, And The Culture At Large.

    Crazy '08: How A Cast Of Cranks, Rogues, Boneheads, And Magnates Created The Greatest Year In Baseball History
      Crazy '08: How A Cast Of Cranks, Rogues, Boneheads, And Magnates Created The Greatest Year In Baseball History.

      From The Perspective Of 2007, The Unintentional Irony Of Chance's Boast Is Manifest-these Days, The Question Is When Will The Cubs Ever Win A Game They Have To Have. In October 1908, Though, No One Would Have Laughed: The Cubs Were, Without Doubt, Baseball's Greatest Team-the First Dynasty Of The 20th Century. "crazy '08" Recounts The 1908 Season-the Year When Peerless Leader Frank Chance's Men Went Toe To Toe To Toe With John Mcgraw And Christy Mathewson's New York Giants And Honus Wagner's Pittsburgh Pirates In The Greatest Pennant Race The National League Has Ever Seen. The American League Has Its Own Three-cornered Pennant Fight, And Players Like Cy Young, Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, And The Egregiously Crooked Hal Chase Ensured That The Junior Circuit Had Its Moments. But It Was The National League's-and The Cubs'-year. "crazy '08," However, Is Not Just The Exciting Story Of A Great Season. It Is Also About The Forces That Created Modern Baseball, And The America That Produced It. In 1908, Crooked Pols Run Chicago's First Ward, And Gambling Magnates Control The Yankees. Fans Regularly Invade The Field To Do Handstands Or Argue With The Umps; Others Shoot Guns From Rickety Grandstands Prone To Burning. There Are Anarchists On The Loose And Racial Killings In The Town That Made Lincoln. On The Flimsiest Of Pretexts, General Abner Doubleday Becomes A Symbol Of Americanism, And Baseball's Own Anthem, &akp;quot;take Me Out To The Ballgame,&quot ;is A Hit. Picaresque And Dramatic, 1908 Is A Season In Which So Many Weird And Wonderful Things Happen That It Is Somehow Unsurprising That A Hairpiece, A Swarm Of Gnats, A Sudden Bout Of Lumbago, And A Disaster Down In The Mines All Play A Role In Its Outcome. And Sometimes The Events Are Not So Wonderful At All. There Are Several Deaths By Baseball, And The Shadow Of Corruption Creeps Closer To The Heart Of Baseball-the Honesty Of The Game Itself. Simply Put, 1908 Is The Year That Baseball Grew Up. Oh, And It Was The Last Time The Cubs Won The World Series. Destined To Be As Memorable As The Season It Documents, "crazy '08" Sets A New Standard For What A Book About Baseball Can Be.
