New exhibition on Baseball

The newest exhibition at The Bookshop in Old New Castle includes baseball material from the personal collection of  the owner of the Old Bookshop of Bordentown. Materials include How to Play Base-Ball by Connie Mack, America’s National Game by A.G. Spalding, The Mickey Mantle Story by Mickey Mantle as told by Ben Epstein, and more. The display also includes an 1877 issue of “Base Ball News”  and the Slide Kelly Slide songster inspired by Mike “King” Kelly. This exhibition is for display only, but other books about baseball are available for purchase at the Bookshop. We hope to see you swing on by!

    I love that cover – Slide Kelly Slide. Did you know that Connie Mack’s house is here in Mt. Airy?
