So, baseball fans, here's the deal:
My wife and I will be moving to Chicago at the end of July. While sorting through the stuff in our storage space in advance of the move, I discovered that I still have two big boxes full of first edition hardcover copies of Big Hair and Plastic Grass: A Funky Ride Through Baseball and America in the Swinging 70s.
I really don't want to have to schlep these boxes to Chicago, and I could really use a few extra bucks to put towards this exciting (but also stressful and rather expensive) transition. Therefore, I've decided to blow these copies out at a mere $20 a pop, shipping included — and yes, I will happily autograph each copy you purchase to you, your friends or your family members. (Father's Day is comin' right up, folks!)
Just make your purchase using the PayPal button below, tell me how many copies you'd like, and what your favorite teams or players from the 1970s were (or those of your gift recipient, whose name you should also include in the message section of the order form). And I will do the rest!
Yes, that's right — you too can own an autographed first edition of my flashback to baseball's coolest, wildest and weirdest decade, a book that received an A- grade from the The A.V. Club, which described it as "enormously entertaining". Lose yourself in the polyester-clad antics of Mark "The Bird" Fidrych, Dave "The Cobra" Parker and a whole lotta other swingin' dudes with great nicknames and even more impressive hair. And it can be yours for only twenty bucks, shipping included! (All told, that's thirty-three percent less than I was previously asking for autographed copies of BH&PG! Such a bargain!)
This offer is good til the end of June, or until those boxes run out. (Wish I could offer you something similar with Stars and Strikes, but I'm all sold out of that one.) Also, please note that this deal only applies within the US; if you're in another country and would like to purchase a copy, please contact me through the email link on this blog, and we'll figure out what the shipping cost will be. As always, I am profoundly appreciative of your support, your help, and your good vibes. Please spread the word, above all — KEEP IT FUNKY.
Peace, Love and Soul,
UPDATE: All of the books have been sold. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
