“A beautiful compilation of the finest work of a uniquely talented artist.” -Bob Costas
Willard Mullin’s Golden Age of Baseball: Drawings 1934-1972 collects for the first time Mullin’s best drawings devoted to baseball. From Babe Ruth to the Baby Mets, Willard Mullin, “Sports Cartoonist of the 20th Century,” was there. Beautiful, tearful, insightful, morally charged, and outrageously hilarious cartoons. Gehrig, DiMaggio, Musial, Berra, Mantle, Mays, the Brooklyn Bum, and hundreds more make history anew in this astounding collection.
Join Hal Bock from his December appearance in the Clubhouse and learn why millions of baseball fans from the ‘30s to the ‘70s looked forward to Willard Mullin’s cartoons in their daily paper.
Hal Bock, an Associated Press sportswriter for over 40 years, specialized in baseball. He covered more World Series than any AP sportswriter in history. A New York City native, Hal’s passion for sportswriting was cultivated by boyhood trips to the ballpark with his father, a postal worker and sports enthusiast who sometimes wrote poetry.
